Abstract

In the last few years there is a process of reforming juvenile criminal law in Bosnia and Herzegovina. The main feature of this reform is reflected in the introduction of new legislative model of criminal status of juveniles, according to which the entire criminal status of juvenile perpetrators of crimes (substantive, procedural, enforcement) is being regulated by a single legislative text - Law on Protection and Treatment of Children and Juveniles in criminal Procedure. This law in almost identical form was originally adopted in the Republic of Srpska (2010), then in the Brcko District of Bosnia and Herzegovina (2011), and finally in the Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina (2014). In this paper author critically analyzes the changes brought about by the present legislative text in the field of alternative measures and sanctions, with emphasis on restorative justice (as the modern concept of social response to crime), which encountered in some of these alternative instruments dealing with juveniles in conflict with law.
