During the process of investigating and drafting the Child Justice Bill, there has been extensive
consultation of both international and local information relating to child justice. This information
comes in various formats: there are conventions, statutes, bills, papers, textbooks, articles,
conference papers, to mention but a few. Furthermore, within these various formats, the sources of
information differ in content: some are quite broad in nature, covering lots of issues under one title,
whilst other sources are fairly specific, and deal with just one or two issues. At the same time, some
sources of information are full of legal and technical language, whereas others contain information
that is expressed in a way that is relatively easy to understand.
For anyone wishing to familiarise himself or herself with, or hoping to read more about, issues
relating to child justice, the process of identifying and locating the most appropriate material for
reading is often a daunting one. That is why we have created this annotated bibliography. Whether
an individual is acquainted with child justice or not, this bibliography hopes to be of some
assistance by drawing together a collection of profiles on some of the most relevant child justice
information currently available. Excerpt from document.
