International regulations in the field of juvenile justice have gradually been introduced ever since the foundation of international organizations dealing with juvenile justice issues. The fight against juvenile delinquency has been the subject of regional and global research, including several states of the international association. In this context the 2nd UN Congress on Crime Prevention and Treatment of Offenders was held, at which the Report "New forms of juvenile delinquency" was presented. In this report, for the first time, materials from several states were used, which met all principles and criteria. A comparative research had been carried out in almost all regions of the globe, whose findings were disseminated on that occasion. The proposals of the general rapporteur are recent and consist in creating special jurisdictions for young adults to assign cases to young adults in juvenile courts (from 18 to 21 years old), to divide the powers of the ordinary courts of law and the courts for juveniles, taking into account the seriousness of the offense, the degree of maturity of the offender, the decision of the court to refer the case to a particular court, the choice of the court by the offenders themselves. The entrustment of the offender to the common law court can only be favorable if addressing the treatment applied by the administrative bodies dealing with minors.
