This article aims to compare the measures undertaken for children in
conflict with the law in terms of strengths and gaps, similarities and
differences, and the profile of children who enter the juvenile justice
system in a progressive state of India, namely Goa, and Singapore. The
measures for children in conflict with the law are examined with reference
to the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child
(UNCRC, 1989), ratified by (among others) India and Singapore. (author’s abstract). This includes a discussion of Singapore’s inclusion of restorative principles in responding to juvenile offending.
