Abstract

With ever-increasing new policies on anti-social behavior and ongoing public concern over the care of children, juvenile crime and law breaking, this new book is a timely examination of recent developments in the areas of youth justice and child protection. The central focus of the book is on whether society and young people in state care, both in young offenders? institutes or foster/care homes, are better served by the dispensation of justice or appropriate family support. A broad range of international contributors discuss different approaches to this issue and the varying extent to which it is dealt with as part of the same system ranging from the English, Welsh, Western European, US and Canadian arrangements, where judicial and service responses are largely segregated to the Scottish system where both are dealt with in the same children's hearing system.
