Abstract

Children who commit serious crimes present a paradox. As children they belong to a group which is generally regarded as vulnerable and in need of protection. As criminals, on the other hand, they are to be condemned, punished and deterred. This unique text argues that it is possible to reconcile the competing and often polarized demands of justice and welfare so that the child's criminality and vulnerability are simultaneously accommodated.
