Abstract

This chapter analyzes the existing legislative, policy, and institutional framework for protecting child offenders within Kenya's Juvenile Justice System (JJS). The Kenyan JJS is undergoing numerous transformations, yet the current legislative and institutional frameworks for child protection do not comprehensively protect child offenders and require further reform. This chapter is divided into four parts: Part I introduces the Juvenile Justice System in Kenya. Part II examines the existing legislative, policy, and Institutional Framework for the Juvenile Justice System in Kenya. Part III summarizes the implementation gaps in the Juvenile Justice System in Kenya, while Part IV concludes the discussion and provides recommendations to enhance the protection of child offenders in Kenya.
