Restorative processes and Children’s Rights

As Scotland progresses with the incorporation of the United Nations Convention of the Rights of the Child (UNCRC) into Scots Law there is a requirement that all practices, when working with children in conflict with the law, are rights-respecting. This includes all restorative processes being developed through the delivery of the Scottish Government’s Restorative Justice Action Plan, to be delivered by 2023.

This Information Sheet, written by Pamela Morrison, aims to consider the practice of restorative processes within relevant articles of the UNCRC.
