Project Description

April 2011 the U.S. Agency for International Development awarded Democracy International a task order to conduct an assessment of the juvenile justice sector in the Eastern Caribbean. The purpose of the assessment was to provide USAID with an analysis and prioritized recommendations for programming in the juvenile justice sector in St. Kitts and Nevis, Antigua & Barbuda, Dominica, St. Lucia, St. Vincent & the Grenadines, Grenada, Jamaica, Trinidad and Tobago, and Guyana. This project included research into the current status of the juvenile justice systems in each of the nine countries, including challenges, gaps, and opportunities, as well as an assessment of political will for reform. Based on this analysis, DI offered prioritized recommendations for each country.
