New Briefing Paper: Children of Incarcerated Parents International Standards and Guidance

Children of incarcerated parents continue to face a range of challenges to the full respect for and enjoyment of their rights. QUNO's new briefing paper provides an update to our previous publication, offering an overview of the international legal standards applicable to these children. The paper is designed to promote the rights of these children, to aid States and other actors in ensuring that these rights are protected in practice, and to contribute to contribute to improving standards. This update incorporates information from legal instruments, treaty bodies, and other guidance from the United Nations and regional systems in both human rights and criminal justice fields.
