Youth Offending and Youth Justice – Edited by Monica Barry and Fergus McNeill
How is the modern world shaping young people and youth crime? What
impact is this having on the latest policies and practice? Are current youth
justice services working? With contributions from leading researchers in
the field, this book offers an insightful, scholarly and critical analysis of
such key issues.
Youth Offending and Youth Justice engages constructively with current policy
and practice debates, tackling issues such as the criminalisation and
penalisation of youth, sentencer decision-making, the incarceration of young people and the role of public opinion.
It also features an applied focus on professional practice.
Drawing on a wide range of high-quality research, this book will enrich the work of practitioners, managers,
policy-makers, students and academics in social work, youth work, criminal justice and youth justice in the UK and
