File Pre-trial Detention Corruption in the Juvenile Justice System
This research paper by Douglas Keillor examines the role of the UNCAC in addressing the global issue of justice sector corruption and the pre-trial detention rights of children. The paper illustrates the important links between corruption and human rights, namely, the right to a justice and pretrial detention system with integrity and the fundamental human rights of children everywhere. Abstract Excessive detention of juveniles is a global problem. Children that encounter the justice system are more vulnerable to abuse, deprivation of basic procedural guarantees, physical and mental health effects and education and social developmental consequences. However, one of the underappreciated aspects of excessive detention is the impact that systemic corruption. Judicial sector corruption causes excessive detention, engrains practices that lead to longer detention and undermines efforts to reform the juvenile justice system. The United Nations Convention against Corruption (UNCAC) is an important global tool in combating systemic governmental corruption. Without understanding the impact of corruption and fully implementing the UNCAC, human rights guarantees for juveniles in detention, such as the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC) will continue to be difficult to fully implement. A preliminary step in understanding how to create effective reforms that address underlying corruption issues is to conduct in-depth research into excessive juvenile detention and the nexus with institutionalized corruption.
