The Assembly of EULEX judges together with Kosovo Juvenile Judges has established a working group in order to improve the Juvenile Justice System in Kosovo. The mandate and the aim of the working group is to identify the strengths and weaknesses of the legislation and the justice system for juveniles.
EULEX has 32 judges and 17 prosecutors deployed in Kosovo who monitor, mentor and advise their local counterparts to improve the rule of law including the Juvenile Justice System, which is a crucial field for society.
The working group is composed of representatives of Kosovo Juvenile Judges, EULEX Judges, EULEX Legal Officers and EULEX Legal Experts from the Legal Policy and Legislation Unit. Representatives from UNICEF and OSCE will observe the meetings of the working group.
