Palestinian children are denied access to justice in the oPt

[15.02.2016, London] New research from Child Rights International Network (CRIN) has analysed and ranked how effectively children can use the law to challenge violations of their rights, in the first-ever global study on children’s access to justice.

Topping the list are Belgium, Portugal and Spain, with Kenya the only country outside Europe to make the top ten. Relegated to the bottom of the pile are Palestine, Eritrea and Equatorial Guinea.

The report took into account whether children could bring lawsuits over violations of their rights, the legal resources available to them, and whether international law on children’s rights was applied in national courts.
