TIJ pushing ‘Bangkok Rules’ to aid women inmates

The Thailand Institute of Justice (TIJ) is gearing up to help promote Bangkok Rules, designed to encourage gender-sensitive treatment of women and girls behind bars.

TIJ director Kittipong Kittayarak said the institute has signed a memorandum of understanding with the Corrections Department and Cambodian authorities to provide guidance in putting the Bangkok Rules into practice.

The Bangkok Rules, formally known as the United Nations Rules for the Treatment of Women Prisoners and Non-custodial Measures for Women Offenders, were adopted by the UN General Assembly in December 2010.
