Module overview

Young people engage, and always have, in activity which is wrongful and harmful. How, as a liberal democratic society, should we respond to that behaviour? This is the central concern of this module. Through discussion of recent research, legislation and policy documents the module considers the present approach to youth justice in England Wales and draws upon theoretical and empirical scholarship, and some historical and comparative policy material, to subject that policy and practice to critical scrutiny.
