Youth Crime: Whose Responsibility?

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


In the political or academic debate on juvenile justice, "responsibility" is an increasingly important concept.The idea of restorative justice is another path to tackle juvenile delinquency and has also contributed to the debate on juvenile justice.Restorative justice encourages criminals to solve the problems posed by past acts, to be responsible for their future actions, and to emphasize the importance of repairing losses.The author studied 41 young offenders, who were applied with a transfer order for restorative justice.This paper examines how the UK judicial system adapts to the transfer order and considers that there are significant differences in the theory and practice of restorative justice.
