Short description:
The Interagency Panel on Juvenile Justice (IPJJ) was established by United Nations Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC) Resolution 1997/30, to act as a "coordination panel on technical advice and assistance in juvenile justice."
At least 1 million boys and girls are deprived of their liberty worldwide. The IPJJ works to change this situation by facilitating and enhancing the coordination of policies, projects and activities among actors engaged in juvenile justice reform. Panel members are active in the promotion and improvement of juvenile justice in compliance with the Convention on the Rights of the Child and other international instruments
