The Juvenile Justice Center is part of a partnership between Carleton University (CU), Yerevan State University (YSU), and University of Kufa (KU) that provides materials and information to improve juvenile justice in the Middle East. This center aims to strengthen legal representation and build capacity for attorneys, local non-government organizations, and judicial officials to respond to human rights violations against children and adolescents in the region.


This website is to educate and inform policymakers, advocates, practitioners, service providers, and individuals on emerging trends in juvenile justice, with the purpose of improving adherence to the Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC) and other international human rights standards.

Legal Q&A


The university partners believe that the initiative will serve as a multilingual resource library in English, Farsi, Arabic, Kurdish, and Armenian languages, providing a platform to improve the service delivery of judicial institutions with supported access to justice and improved detention conditions, so that juveniles in conflict with the law are better protected.
