Evaluation of Juvenile Justice Sector Reform Implementation in Saint Lucia, St. Kitts and Nevis, and Guyana: Endline Report

We focus on the following sets of questions: first, have key milestones in the juvenile justice reform process been achieved? If not, what have been the primary barriers to progress? Second, approximately how many youth are given diversion programs rather than traditional programs rooted in punitive measures, and how have these numbers evolved over time? Third, what is the quality and perceived effectiveness of court processes in the use of diversion and alternative sentencing options, as well as rehabilitation and reintegration programs? Where programming is weak, what have been the biggest obstacles to improvement? And finally, how likely is it that reforms will be institutionalized and sustainable over time?
