The overall goal of the toolkit is to support UNICEF and their partners in implementing key provisions of the CRC relating to children in conflict with the law, specifically: reducing children's contact with judicial proceedings and ensuring that deprivation of liberty of children in conflict with the law is actually used as a last resort, decreasing the number of children deprived of liberty.

This toolkit provides clear, user-friendly guidance and practical tools for people working in this important field. Using this toolkit will enable readers to gain a better understanding of diversion and alternatives to detention and to access a range of resources to assist with practical implementation.
