Issue 13.2 Special Issue: Taking Stock of Youth Justice

Volume 13, Issue 2 of the British Journal of Community Justice, Taking Stock of Youth Justice, will be published in September 2015. This issue contains eight papers, including an article based on the Brian Williams Memorial Prize 2014 winning dissertation, in addition to the Editorial, Community Justice Files and Book Reviews. 


These are interesting times for youth justice in England and Wales.  The number of young offenders convicted by the courts has fallen dramatically over the last few years, as has the number of young offenders in custody, and yet political debate about how to respond to offending by young people continues apace.  The coalition government gave greater freedom of contact to youth offending teams and yet committed to building a large secure college for young offenders.  It abolished antisocial behaviour orders, but replaced these with a range of alternative options in the Anti-social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Act 2014.  At the same time it can be argued a range of social and economic policies have impacted disproportionately on young people, increasing their risk of involvement in criminal activity.


This special issue will reflect on recent developments and consider what is needed to improve the youth justice system, however this might be defined.
