The aim of the Guidelines is to assist African nations in establishing, maintaining and improving justice systems so that they respond to the specific needs of children. Adopted in 2011 at the Kampala Conference on Child Justice in Africa, and endorsed by the ACERWC in April 2012, the Guidelines provide practical guidance to African governments to help them meet their treaty obligations at both regional and international level. They also provide guidance for the co-ordination and direction of actions by various role-players in the formal and informal justice systems in Africa, including non-governmental organisations, professional associations, the judiciary, the media, academic institutions and training bodies, traditional authorities, members of civil society, participants in the social workforce, and children.
