The Trinidad and Tobago Juvenile Court Project - Brochure
The Trinidad and Tobago Juvenile Court Project is an important step in improving the juvenile justice system. Through this project the court system will
consider the needs and best interests of the child and assist in addressing the root causes of conflict with the law. These courts are seeking to use a
restorative justice framework by which assistance is offered with the healthy reintegration of our children into the community.
The project will build the institutional capacity of juvenile courts to enable effective and efficient case management in accordance with new laws and principles of Restorative Justice. It will assist in improving the capacity of state and nongovernmental agencies to support the court by offering appropriate diversionary programmes and participating in the adjudicatory process in keeping with the philosophy of a restorative approach.
