Towards Child-Friendly Justice in Egypt




The objective of this project is to support the development of a child-friendly justice system in Egypt by enhancing the institutional coordination, judicial capacity and effectiveness of the Egyptian Child Justice System to better protect children in contact with the law. Aligned with Egypt’s Vision 2030, the National Child Strategy and the UN SDGs, the project is implemented by the OECD with the financial support of the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation.   

As part of the MENA-OECD Governance Programme, this project will support the National Council for Childhood and Motherhood (NCCM) as the main national entity in charge of policymaking, planning and implementing programmes for the protection of children in conflict with the law for a more coordinated, participatory and coherent approach that enable a child-friendly Justice system in Egypt.

The project will facilitate high-level engagement in support of effective implementation of the objectives of the Strategic Framework and National Plan for Childhood and Motherhood in Egypt (SF&NPCM) for the years 2018-2030 to contribute to strengthening the Rule of Law and enable a child-friendly justice system in Egypt. The project will also avail experiences from different OECD countries particularly through peer-to-peer exchanges and policy dialogue with the Government of Egypt.

The project will support the Government of Egypt in identifying key challenges and opportunities in this field and build a Roadmap for reform and raising public awareness on the importance of child-friendly justice.
