The final report of research in Armenia, Azerbaijan, Georgia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, the Republic of Moldova, Tajikistan, and Ukraine - UNICEF offices in the Central and Eastern European/Commonwealth of Independent States (CEE/CIS) region have been supporting juvenile justice system reforms for more than a decade. As their work on juvenile justice progressed, the issue of torture and ill-treatment emerged as one requiring further attention.
As a result of this observation, the European Commission and UNICEF have conducted in 2011–2013 a research on torture and ill-treatment in the context of juvenile justice in eight countries of the region. The research had three main components: surveys of the experiences of children; effectiveness of mechanisms for the investigation of torture and ill-treatment; impact of torture and ill-treatment on victims.
