Child Sexual Abuse and Protection Laws in India presents in-depth research on the sexual abuse of children in India, the related protection laws and the gaps in current preventive measures. The book includes chapters on the nature of sexual offences theories that explain why they occur, and the laws for regulating the same. It discusses the role of the judiciary and the criminal justice machinery in preventing abuse and cyber sexual crimes targeting children. This book studies the existing legal procedural provisions, regulations with case laws, several new mechanisms to deal with juvenile delinquency, rehabilitation of juvenile offenders, various jurisprudential understandings and judicial analysis of the issue. The book advocates the use of innovative approaches, such as the therapeutic jurisprudential approach, in the sentencing and rehabilitation of juvenile victims and offenders to ensure their physical and psychological well-being.
