Bangkok Rules : Key principles


The 70 Rules of the United Nations Rules for the Treatment of Women Prisoners and Non-custodial Measures for Women Offenders (the Bangkok Rules) are connected and overlaid by the principle of non-discrimination, emphasizing that catering to gender-specific needs of women prisoners is not an act of discrimination. Instead, since most correctional facilities have been built to meet men’s needs, failing to address women’s specific needs prohibits them from gaining equal opportunity to rehabilitate.

About Bangkok Rules & TIJ


The United Nations Rules for the Treatment of Women Prisoners and Non-custodial Measures for Women Offenders (the Bangkok Rules), adopted by the United Nations General Assembly on 21 December 2010, is the first international instrument which provides specific and detailed guidelines on responding to the gender specific needs of women in the criminal justice system, as well as of the children of such women. After the adoption, Thailand, along with many other countries, international organizations and criminal justice agencies working with women, place a strong emphasis on putting these Rules into practice.
