Juvenile Justice System Act (JJSA) 2018

I wish to thank the Director, Dr. Saeed Shafqat, whose encouragement, guidance, and support from the initial to the final level enabled me to develop an understanding of the subject. I wish to thank Arfeen Naeem Baig, my Research Associate for developing this manual for the training sessions for our stakeholders. I extend my heartfelt appreciation to the participants of the Training Sessions representing diverse departments including the Directorate of Probation & Parole Punjab, Social Welfare Bait-ul-Mal, Prosecution Department, Police Department, and the law graduates from Kinnaird College for Women University and Lahore School of Law and our Master Trainer Advocate Waheed Ahmad Chaudhry for his efforts. Their engagement and expertise have been pivotal in shaping the practical aspects of this study.

This manual is developed as a part of the capacity building measure for the Project “Juvenile Justice System Act (JJSA) 2018: Assessment, Analysis and Capacity Building”. It has two broad objectives: First to provide comprehensive guidance and disseminate knowledge on the Juvenile Justice System Act (JJSA) 2018 for relevant departments of Punjab. Second, to assist concerned government departments in understanding their roles and responsibilities, promoting effective collaboration, and ensuring the seamless execution of the juvenile justice system in Punjab.
