Research Studies

The Centre for Criminology & Justice undertook a state level study titled ‘Status of Justice Delivery System for Juveniles in Conflict with Law in Maharashtra’ in the year 2008. The study was conducted in all thirty five districts of Maharashtra with due permissions from the Bombay High Court and the Department of Women and Child Development (GOM). The final report was submitted to the Bombay HC in the year 2009 for further perusal. This resulted in the Bombay HC taking proactive steps to implement the recommendations of the study.

Based on the changes bought about in Maharashtra by this study, the Ministry of Law and Justice Commissioned a similar study on ‘Status of Justice Delivery System for Juveniles in Conflict with Law in Delhi’. The final report of this study was submitted to Delhi Juvenile Justice Committee (Delhi HC), Ministry of Law and Justice, Women and Child Development Department in the year 2010.

RCJJ also collaborated with the Department of Criminology (University of Madras) to do a study on “Issues and Challenges of the Juvenile Justice Institutions in Tamil Nadu in 2011.

More recently, the Orissa Women and Child Development Department has taken the initiative of conducting a similar study using RCJJ expertise and ICPS manpower and finance.
