The respective diploma thesis is devoted to the question whether there is a need for education for juveniles deprived of their liberty and if so, to what extent it has been implemented so far within the Council of Europe-area.Recognizing that education is on the one hand a fundamental human right which every person shall be able to take advantage of and on the other hand a means to foster the individual development of juveniles within a prison context as well as to improve the conditions of detention, the paper identifies the relevant international and European norms in this field.In this regard, the international and European standards for the deprivation of liberty of juvenile delinquents, such as the Beijing Rules (1985), the Riyadh Guidelines (1990), the UN Rules for the Protection of Juveniles deprived of their Liberty (1990), the revised European Prison Rules (2006) and the Greifswald Rules (2008) have been elaborated.Furthermore, following a practical approach to the right to education for juveniles deprived of their liberty, an assessment of the situation on the ground with respect to the implementation of this right in the Council of Europe-area has been conducted ? divided into an assessment of four exemplary (and representative) Council of Europe Member States, namely Albania, Austria, Finland and Malta.Therefore, three areas of measurement have been identified for each Member State: Police custody (and pre-trial detention), Imprisonment and Foreign nationals detained under aliens legislation, whereas special emphasis has been put on the observations made by monitoring institutions established by international and European human rights law, such as the CRC, the CAT and the CPT.Finally, a comparative assessment of the findings regarding the selected Council of Europe Member States indicates common areas of positive development as well as common areas of concern ? with a view to further action in this field.
