On Egyptian Children in Prisons


Executive Summary

On World Children's Day (November 20), Belady publishes an analytical research on the data of 1274 children who were arrested and/or imprisoned over nine years (2013-2021). It is an occasion to reflect on the situation of the Egyptian child in general, as well as the arrested and imprisoned Egyptian child, whether during arrest, trial, or imprisonment. The research includes a reminder of the goals of World Children's Day and the direction of the international effort to provide a healthy environment for children around the world. The research also addresses the Egyptian legal framework for children's rights, in addition to the fragile situation of the imprisoned child on political grounds and the violations of their humanity. We presented a set of recommendations for improving the conditions of these children, their protection, and reintegration into Egyptian society.
