The Neuchâtel Memorandum on Good Practices for Juvenile Justice in a Counterterrorism Context


Global Counterterrorism Forum

Abstract

A guide for those who must develop and execute programs and policies regarding the specific circumstances surrounding children who are in the criminal justice system charged with committing acts of terrorism or violent extremism.

In consideration of the increasing number of individuals under the age of eighteen who are charged with terrorism offenses,  the GCTF has set forth good practices as part of their Life Cycle Initiative to enhance the existing juvenile justice system as it relates to a counterterrorism context. This memo serves as a guide to practitioners and policymakers alike who must develop and execute programs and policies regarding the specific circumstances surrounding children who are in the criminal justice system charged with committing acts of terrorism or violent extremism.  

This Memorandum is divided into the following five sections: (i) the status of children and their protection under international law and juvenile justice standards; (ii) prevention; (iii) justice for children; (iv) rehabilitation and reintegration; and (v) capacity development, monitoring, and evaluation.
