The Global Study on Children Deprived of Liberty publishes guidelines to enhance NGOs engagement at national level

Juvenile Justice in the world

The NGO Panel for the Global Study on Children Deprived of Liberty has developed a guidance document to inform the NGO community about the GSCDL, its origin, its implementation, the methodology of work and the role of the NGOs, and more broadly civil society and the academic world, about the role they can play in the Study, including the ways they can support and contribute to it.

The engagement of nongovernmental organizations, academics, other experts, and children’s rights advocates will continue to be crucial in the preparation and follow-up of the study.

Here are the main 9 points on which the NGOs should focus in order to assist the implementation of the Study at national level:

1) Have one NGO (focal point) to take the lead and to make sure to identify all organisations that could contribute to the Study

2) Gather material and raise awareness among main stakeholders.

3) Identify the Government Focal Point (GFP) and collaborate with it.

4) Check the data collected by the GFP and fill in the gaps.

5) Identify research, studies, and interesting practices.

6) Join in or help organise consultations.

7) Lobby governments or other potential donors to contribute.

8) Organise a public event to present the results and/or the Study once published.

9) Ensure the follow-up of the Study and monitor compliance of the recommendations put forward.
