The paper evaluates policies and practices in juvenile justice from a comparative perspective. It is focused on an analysis of juvenile justice taking into account also work of prosecutors and the judges. In many states of Europe as well as in Kosovo there are developed strategies for reforms of the juvenile justice which have noted qualitative changes and with this, a distinct level of convergence between systems of European states is noted. By using the qualitative methodology and with the use of the method of comparative analysis and method of historical analysis, the authors will be focused on the historical development of the juvenile justice system in Kosovo, under the context of the development of this field in various states of Central and Eastern Europe. The findings and recommendations in this paper could enhance scholarly and institutional tackling of juvenile justice.
