About the Book

Crime against a child is not an offense against an individual only but against the whole society. This Book will take stock of the current context and aims to bring greater clarity as to how children are victims and vulnerable to various crimes in India. This book will assess the administration of the Juvenile Justice System in India.

This Book will also focus that children have a right to respect for their evolving capacities and that respecting this right would re-direct the criminal justice system towards a normative framework better equipped to accommodate the realities of childhood; one which contains a clear foregrounding of the child’s experiences and the reality of their daily lives and in which the child’s experience of powerlessness and vulnerability is embedded throughout.

Title of the Book: “Crimes against Children in India: Preventive and Protective Laws”.
