Crisis of Justice for Sexually Exploited Children

The Access to justice study was conducted in 2or6 to assess the ability of sexually exploited children to access the criminal judicial process in India.

The study provides a unique look at the criminal justice process through the eyes of sexually exploited children. It is not a comprehensive analysis of the Study Countries' efforts to incorporate international access-to-justice standards or to implement child-sensitive procedures. Rather, it is intended to provide unique insight into the child's experience of these justice systems and highlight aspects of the justice process that merit additional attention.
 
Children have a right under Article 34 of the Convention on the Rights of the Child to live a life free of sexual abuse and exploitation and to access justice when this right is violated.
 
Access to justice for children is defined as the"the ability to obtain a just and timely remedy for violations of rights" under international law.For sexually exploited children, the criminal
justice system is an important way to secure legal remedies, including the compensation and services they need to recover and return to healthy lives. Indeed, participating in a criminal case against their offender is sometimes their only avenue for redress, as it can be costly and impractical to seek damages through separate civil lawsuits, and aid from state compensation funds, when available, is usually minimal.
 
To secure remedies for the violation of their rights, sexually exploited children must be able to engage effectively with the criminal justice system. States have a duty under international law and standards to help child victims participate in criminal cases against their offenders without being exposed to additional harm in the process, such as threats to their safety, privacy, health, or well-being. This "child-friendly" approach to justice recognizes therights of child victims and witnesses and balances them against those of accused offenders.
