Purpose of Activity/Assignment:

The Republic of Serbia is in the midst of a process of implementing comprehensive reforms of its judicial system, increasing its efficiency and harmonizing it with relevant international and European standards. As an integral part of the European integration process and overall reform of Serbian judiciary, significant legislative changes have been carried out with the aim of advancing the judicial system in the area that concerns the achievement of rights of children in line with the principle of the best interests of the child.

So far, the most significant efforts have been invested in improvement of the juvenile justice system that started with the adoption of the Law on Juvenile Criminal Offenders and Protection of Minors in Criminal Proceedings (Juvenile Justice Law), which came into force in 2006.

The Juvenile Justice Law represents a milestone in reform of the Serbian justice for children system and one of its most important novelties is introduction of diversionary measures. The purpose of diversionary measures is to avoid instituting criminal proceedings against a child offender or to suspend proceedings and provide support to a child offender through different interventions influencing his/her proper development and preventing future re-offending. Diversionary measures include: mediation, obligatory school attendance, community work, attendance to a substance abuse treatment programme and individual/group counselling and are designed for those children in conflict with the law who wish to make a change for the better.

The Ministry of Justice has reiterated its commitment to accelerate child-related justice reforms and this area of work has been identified as one of its priorities in the European Commission Instrument of PreAccession funds and projects (IPA). The project entitled “Strengthening the justice and social welfare systems to advance the protection of children in Serbia” (IPA 2013 project) which started in September 2014 and is expected to end in December 2017 is implemented by UNICEF in partnership with Ministry of Justice and Ministry of Labour, Employment, Veteran and Social Affairs.

The IPA 2013 project component related to children as offenders is focused on improvement of application of diversionary measures with the aim to allow prioritizing restorative and re-integrative approaches to dealing with child offending and approaches focused on reduction of recidivism. This is done through piloting of diversionary measures in four towns in Serbia (Belgrade, Kragujevac, Nis and Novi Sad), developing regulations for their application and building capacity of professionals working with child offenders and their families. Ultimately, these interventions should lead to a reduction of length of court proceedings and increase of percentage of application of diversionary measures in relation to the total number of reported cases of juvenile offending. Also, according to relevant international standards and practice, diversionary measures are designed to be less costly than formal court proceedings. They reduce the burden on the court system and case-load of juvenile justice judges and prosecutors and consequently free up limited resources and services for high-risk child offenders. In this way they contribute to one of the main objectives of the National Judicial Reform Strategy, a key document guiding the reform of the justice system in Serbia.

UNICEF in Serbia is seeking to hire a consultant to conduct a cost analysis of application of diversionary measures and to identify fiscal space and financial mechanisms through which such schemes could be supported.
Start Date: End Date: Number of working days/months

10 May 2017 15 June 2017 20 working days
Work Assignment Overview


1) Calculate the cost of implementation of each of the 5 diversionary measures defined by law. Identify the types of costs the implementation of a diversionary measure entails and any variations in price (e.g. impact of economy of scale).

The consultant is expected to complete this task through obtaining feedback on spending from all partners that have participated in the implementation of diversionary measures. This will require face to face meetings with partners in Kragujevac, Belgrade, Nis and Novi Sad.

2) Identify fiscal space for financing the schemes from related areas in the justice system. One of these is the costs of processing the offender through the regular juvenile justice system. The consultant is expected to provide an estimate of these costs, based on feedback obtained from justice professionals and practitioners. The consultant is also requested to identify other fiscal space, within the juvenile justice system, where savings could be made and invested in supporting the reintegration of juvenile offenders through application of diversionary measures.

3) Identify national and local mechanisms for financing the application of diversionary schemes and provide recommendations for insuring these mechanisms are used for the given purpose. In completing this task, the consultant is expected to have meetings with justice and social welfare stakeholders. A preliminary identification of mechanisms are the following: the Ministry of Justice fund for supporting projects of public interest, the Ear marked transfers to local governments provided by the Ministry of Labour, Employment, Veteran and Social Affairs and the Support to NGO service providers for community service provision provided by the Ministry of Labour, Employment, Veteran and Social Affairs.
