Abstract

Special attention is being paid to minors not only in our country, but also in all countries of the world.
Judicial and legal reforms in Uzbekistan have identified the protection of the rights and legitimate interests of minors, especially the further liberalization of criminal liability, as one of the main tasks. This article reveals the features of criminal liability for juvenile delinquency in International standards such as “Beijing rules,” as well as in some foreign countries, their juvenile justice system and some theoretical and practical issues in Uzbekistan related to minors, with the adaptation of positive experience of these countries to our national legislation. For instance, the author analyzes what juvenile justice is, when and where it was established, what kind of international standards exist in this field, and why we know its positive and negative aspects. Secondly, this article identifies contemporary approaches to minors’ crime and punishment in various developed European countries, particularly Russia, Germany, France, and Japan from Asia. All information was taken from these countries’ official legislations. Moreover, in this article several viewpoints of some of lawyers and specialists in the juvenile justice system were given. At the conclusion of this article, some new norms to Criminal code of Uzbekistan can be proposed.
