Access to justice
Nearly one million children are currently deprived of liberty. Most frequently they are detained for having committed minor offences, although custody should be a last resort. Tdh encourages a restorative approach and a reduction of recidivism. We are committed to change practices to ensure that each child has access to a justice that is respecting their rights and adapted to their circumstances and needs.
Our work in the field of access to justice:
Promotion of non-custodial measures
Improvement of custody conditions
Improving prevention and reintegration services
Supporting collaboration in the contexts of legal pluralism

We work for change in judicial systems to keep children out of prison. With professional support, we help them earn a fresh start in their communities.
“Justice for children and youth remains a real challenge: more than one million young people worldwide are believed to be deprived of their liberty. Over 70% of them are still awaiting trial.”
