Youth Justice in Scotland: Fixed in the past or fit for the future?

Year: 2014
Topic: Legislation
Author: Centre for Youth and Criminal Justice

Centre for Youth and Criminal Justice (CYCJ) -  Scotland’s national centre for youth justice - has produced a seminal paper that reflects on the country’s youth crime and justice scene, 50 years on from the Kilbrandon Report and in the midst of a referendum debate exploring potential improvements for the future.

This paper is intended as a starting point for discussion and debate about how to progress youth justice in Scotland. CYCJ are keen to hear from interested parties about the proposals outlined, and hope the paper will act as a springboard for further action.
