International Seminar on Juvenile Justice System: Trends and Challenges in Globalizing World
College of Legal Studies at University of Petroleum and Energy Studies (UPES) is going to organize two days International Seminar on Juvenile Justice System: Trends and Challenges in Globalizing World.
Date: 26th - 27th November, 2016
Crimes are universal phenomenon, which causes irreparable damage to an individual and to the society. Any country is not immune to the consequences of criminal wrongs. In the recent past, various issues concerning juveniles have witnessed debates and discussions round the globe. Besides the reduction of the age of juveniles for heinous offences by Indian government, different countries continue to debate on the fixation of the age of juveniles.
The recent Juvenile Justice (Care and Protection of Children) Act, 2015 passed by the Indian Parliament has again opened the doors for debate. The Idea of separate justice system for juveniles and adults is based on the premise that a juvenile is more likely to be reformed as compared to adult criminals. From this perspective special juvenile laws are enacted and institutions are established for protection of children.
In a globalizing world, the issues concerning juveniles are even more critical. With technological developments, a new era of crimes has come into fashion. The technology has advanced the present generation and brought them to an entirely new world, and has opened new avenues of crimes.
The right path is being still looked for and the legal systems across the globe, are discussing the ways to tackle the issues concerning juveniles and fluctuate between the idea of correcting the juvenile in conflict with law and reinstating the juvenile as responsible citizen, depending upon their, social, cultural, political, economic, legal and other prevailing conditions, should be corrected and reinstated back to the society as a responsible citizen or should be caught hold off because of his attack on basic social values. However, these fluctuations are affected by the attitude of international communities in a globalizing world.
