Juvenile Justice Law Strategic and Operational Plan (JJLSOP)

Ministry of Justice and Ministry of Social Affairs Veterans and Youth Rehabilitation

The Juvenile Justice Law Strategic and Operational Plan (JJLSOP) is jointly developed by the Cambodian Ministry of Social Affairs, Veterans and Youth Rehabilitation (MoSVY), the Ministry of Justice (MoJ), and the Ministry of Interior (MoI) with support from UNICEF, international organizations and NGOs. The plan sets out two over-arching objectives in the implementation of the Juvenile Justice Law. It builds a solid and sustainable foundation for a modern juvenile justice system and provides effective and positive impact to current and future children, who are in conflict with law. This leads to continuous improvement of the current system and reduce the number of children in detention.

To achieve the objectives, the plan puts in place nine strategic program areas such as coordination, management and communication, education and training, social agents, diversion, reintegration, detention, crime prevention, operating system and policy framework and monitoring and evaluation.
