Child Justice - Policy dialogue: EU JULE Policy Brief No.6
Sep 22, 2020
Since 2005, Viet Nam has embarked on comprehensive reforms of the legal and judicial systems following the vision and objectives outlined in the two Politburo’s Resolutions, the Legal System Development Strategy (Resolution 48 on LSDS), and the Judicial Reform Strategy (Resolution 49). During this process, important progress has been made in creating critical elements of the child justice system in Viet Nam.
To further support the efforts, the Justice and Legal Empowerment Programme in Viet Nam (EU JULE) aims at strengthening the capacity of Viet Nam’s legal and judicial system for increased access to justice of vulnerable groups, including children. In light of the ongoing review of the Legal and Judicial Reform Strategies, the Ministry of Justice (MOJ), European Union Delegation and UNICEF jointly organized the Policy Dialogue on “Child Rights and Child Justice in the Legal and Judicial Reforms” to take stock of achievements and chart the way forward for realizing children’s rights and access to justice in the coming period.
This EU JULE Policy Brief No.6 will summarize the main information on the policy dialogue on child rights and child justice in the legal and judicial reform.
