United States Report Card: Youth Justice Issues

United States Report Card: Youth Justice Issues

In the spring of 2014, the U.S. was reviewed by the U.N. Human Rights Committee on its compliance with the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights. Following the review, the Committee issued Concluding Observations and Recommendations that expressed serious concern about a number of human rights issues, including youth justice.1 One year after the review, this report card describes actions taken at the federal and state level that respond to the youth justice recommendations and the urgent further actions that must be taken to bring the U.S. into compliance with its human rights obligations.
