This IPJJ-PRI paper reaffirms that children deprived of their liberty have the right to complain about their conditions, treatment and care through mechanisms that are safe, child-sensitive, effective and easily accessible. It highlights what the right to complain involves and requires, covering both informal and formal complaint mechanisms. It shows that the accessibility, safety and effectiveness of complaint procedures are key for ensuring that children have a voice in detention.
