The eighth largest country in the world, Argentina’s terrain varies massively from its sub-tropical north to its sub-antarctic south. The country emerged from a military dictatorship in 1983, and has been governed by democratically elected leaders since. Though Argentina’s courts found life imprisonment for children unconstitutional in 2012, many ongoing violations of children’s rights in the country relate to the justice system, whether in the form of ill-treatment of children by police, the detention of children with adults or the use of lengthy pre-trial detention for children.
