Adjunct Professor Barry Goldson from the University of Liverpool (UK) has co-edited the second edition of “Youth Crime and Justice”, comprising of a range of cutting-edge contributions from leading national and international researchers. Released earlier this year, the book:
- Situates youth crime and youth justice within historical and social-structural contexts;
- Critically examines policy and practice trends and their relation to knowledge and ‘evidence’; and
- Presents a forward looking vision of a rights compliant youth justice with integrity
Topics covered include the history of youth crime and youth justice, specific focus on race and gender in the context of juvenile justice, youth crime trends, and addressing youth crime through restorative justice measures.
