Youth violence is a Central America's bigger problem. It is linked to social and family fragmentation and to extortion, often related to drug trafficking. So far, measures to deal with it have been essentially repressive. IILA, together with SICA, agreed on an intervention Framework based on Juvenile Restorative Justice, an approach based on the possibility to repairing the damage caused to the victim and the restoring of social relationships between the offender, the victim, and the community they belong to. The aims of the Project, with a 3 budget of 2MEUR and a three-year duration, are to strengthen the Juvenile Justice Systems in the SICA countries, as part of the Framework of SICA Central American Security Strategy and to support in these countries the review, design and adaptation of a Juvenile Restorative Justice model as a strategy for the prevention of violence and the reintegration of minors in conflict with the Law. The main components are a) advocacy, b) strengthening and development of the operators' skills also through field work and c) social awareness and communication. The fund for the creation of micro-projects for experimenting this approach in specific Central American realities will be an important part. Given its pilot nature, governance mechanisms will be equally important. read more close
