Abstract

This thesis provides insight into the juvenile justice systems in Sweden and Indonesia and an analysis of the extent to which the systems adhere to human rights. Comparing two juvenile justice systems is a complex and multifaceted process as each system has its own operation and organization. It is therefore necessary to identify relevant focal points in order to establish a basis for the comparative analysis. The identified focal points are juvenile delinquency, minimum age of criminal responsibility, available penal sanctions, reduction of sanctions and the overall ideology of the juvenile justice system.

The comparative analysis reveals that the operation and organization of both juvenile justice systems are highly influenced by underlying values of the system and the societal view on juveniles. Cultural traditions have a major impact on both systems and thus also on the adherence to human rights standards. The adherence to human rights standards can thus be hampered or supported by cultural influences. It remains to be seen in what direction the systems will develop in the future and whether the changes makes them come closer together or grow further apart. (Less)
