Juvenile Justice 4 Swe.authorities implementation

Activity identifier

The contribution will focus on juvenile justice reform in Albania and will be implemented over a 3 years period, as a joint cooperation effort between the Swedish and Albanian law enforcement authorities: police, prosecution, courts, prison and probation services. The intervention will be implemented under the responsibility of the Swedish Police Authority who will be accountable to the Embassy in Albania regarding the results achieved and the use of the funds. The other participating Swedish authorities namely Prosecution, Court administration, Prison and Probation services will be part of the programme implementation but reporting directly to the Swedish Police Authority as the Lead Agency for this programme. The intervention's goal is to strengthen the whole justice chain for juvenile offenders and reach applicable international standards throughout the whole chain of justice. This intervention targets the existing weaknesses in the field of Juvenile Justice in Albania and in the observance of Human Rights for juveniles. The contribution will support the enhancement of the working capacities of the Albanian partner agencies within the justice sector. The primary overall objective is to support the Albanian law enforcement agencies’ progression towards meeting international human rights standards in juvenile justice. By meeting these standards, Albania will progress towards fulfilling the criteria of the European Union acquis. Another long-term objective is to contribute to increased public trust in the criminal justice system. With the juvenile in focus, the intervention also aims to contribute to improved rehabilitation of young offenders, and facilitate their integration into society, leading to increased security and safety for the public at large. Throughout its implementation, the intervention will be closely linked with the ongoing overall justice Reform in Albania, and will constitute an integral part of it. The justice reform is considered one of the major endeavours of Albania in its road towards EU accession and the establishment of a fair and accessible justice for all.
