The book explores socio-legal and human rights dimensions of Juvenile Justice System (JJS) in India. Addressing the issue from a wide range of perspectives-sociological, demographic, legislative, judicial, and interventionist-the book attempts a macro level examination of these issues in amultidimensional perspective. The study identifies the nature, scope, and structure of JJS, and analyses and identifies the stumbling blocks in the development of JJS in India. It also draws together various strands of complex and diverse issues where substantive and procedural lacunae relating toJJS is debated and measures suggested. The volume provides a comparative analysis of provisions of earlier enactment for evolving a comprehensive and integrated Juvenile Justice System in view of the vision and concerns of the lawmakers as also the pattern of implementation under the earlierlegislation.
