Juvenile Justice Children Rights in Kosovo
On 15-16 June, UNMIK Human Rights Office organized a round table on the protection of the rights of children in the justice system. Judge Renate Winter, a highly experienced specialist in juvenile justice, Vice President of the UN Committee on the Rights of the Child and Judge for the Hybrid Court of Sierra Leone facilitated in her private capacity the two days brainstorming. Representatives of the Assembly of Kosovo, the Ministry of Justice and the correctional services, child rights experts, judges, prosecutors, lawyers, civil society and international organizations participated in the event, which provided them with the opportunity to exchange best practices and explore how to further implement human rights standards in the administration of justice for juveniles and children in Kosovo. Judge Renate Winter noted that despite significant advancement in legislation, the major obstacle for the protection of children rights in conflict with the Law, remains the implementation of the legal framework.
