Caught In The Legal Mesh

July 05, 2017
India has strong legislation in place to protect children from sexual exploitation. However, this has not translated into child-friendly practice for accessing justice, in particular the criminal justice system. Instead, these children continue to face unique and powerful barriers that prevent them from accessing justice for the crimes committed against them. 
This study examines the experiences of children in Madhya Pradesh and West Bengal and provides insights on their access to the justice system as well as judicial processes themselves.
