  • ISSN : 1562-4382



On 22 September 2000 in Geneva the UN Committee on the Rights of the Child devoted a day of discussions on state violence against children. This issue was divided into two sub-themes namely, mistreatment, abuse and neglect of children in the Care of the State and violence against children in the context of law and order concerns. Penal Reform International (PRI) made a submission in the form of a ten-point pan for reducing violence in juvenile justice systems. PRI is an international NGO involved in prison reform and developing alternatives to imprisonment. The organisation has been active in Africa for a number of years in developing alternatives to imprisonment and has had particular success in Zimbabwe with the introduction and establishment of community service orders.
