Annotation: This document presents the proceedings of a joint seminar on coordination and cooperation in the administration of juvenile justice held in Nairobi, Kenya on August 14-17, 2001.
Abstract: The seminar was jointly funded by the Government of Kenya and the Japanese International Cooperation Agency (JICA). Participants were drawn from the United Nations Asia and Far East Institute for the Prevention of Crime and Treatment of Offenders (UNAFEI), United Nations African Institute for the Prevention of Crime and the Treatment of Offenders (UNAFRI), heads of government departments, various Ministries of the Kenyan Government, the judiciary through to the judicial training committee, and non-government organizations. The seminar aimed at sensitizing all criminal justice agencies of the need to cooperate and coordinate in contributing to improvement of juvenile justice policies and administration to ensure that the rights and privileges of all juveniles are safeguarded. The objective was to improve and sustain administration of juvenile justice; enhance and promote co-operation and co-ordination; create awareness of the importance of such co-ordination and co-operation; and identify problems and suggest solutions that hamper such co-ordination and co-operation. The seminar topics related to the roles of public prosecutors, Kenyan police, criminal investigation, judiciary, prison, probation, treatment, non-government organizations, and the UNICEF in juvenile justice. 3 tables, 4 figures, 3 footnotes, 4 appendices
