  • The child specific aspects of the monitoring of places of deprivation of liberty for children and the need to adopt a child rights based approach;

  • A clear monitoring strategy including a monitoring methodology that ensures the efficient preparation, implementation and follow up of visits;

  • Communication and cooperation between monitoring bodies of places of deprivation of liberty for children, at international, regional and national levels.
