Caribbean Basin Security Initative Juvenile Justice Assessment
In 2011 Democracy International conducted an assessment of the juvenile justice sector in the Eastern Caribbean for USAID. The purpose of the assessment was to provide analysis and prioritized recommendations for future USAID programming in the juvenile justice sector in nine countries: Antigua & Barbuda, Dominica, Grenada, Guyana, Jamaica, St. Kitts and Nevis, St. Lucia, St. Vincent & the Grenadines, and Trinidad and Tobago. The project included research into the current status of the juvenile justice systems in each of the countries, including challenges, gaps, and opportunities, as well as an assessment of the political will for reform. Based on this analysis, DI offered prioritized recommendations for each country.
