Juvenile Detention in Uganda
By Marianne Moore
18 October 2010
Marianne Moore has written an extensive new report for APP entitled “Juvenile Detention in Uganda”. The report is subtitled “Review of Ugandan Remand Homes and the National Rehabilitation Centre”, and is compiled from research including site visits and interviews carried out in August 2010.
Following an introductory overview of juvenile justice in Uganda, the report deals with the following subjects:
- Profile of children in conflict with the law
- Safeguarding children
- Juvenile justice system
- Conditions of detention
- Education and training
- Community reintegration
The report makes 36 recommendations, and ends with a conclusion which notes areas of good practice as well as elements which require immediate attention, including a suggestion that an independent auditor be employed to ensure that the welfare of the children in conflict with the law in Uganda is upheld.
