Show Summary Details


This chapter provides a detailed description of what a preventive system of juvenile justice would look like. The chapter also presents case studies that allow comparison between the rehabilitative, individual prevention, and retributive regimes. The individual prevention system would be administrative rather than criminal in nature and would rely on modern risk-assessment and risk-management techniques. In further contrast to the current system, it would not permit transfer to adult courts.

Keywords: juvenile justice system; preventive system; juvenile offenders; individual prevention; risk management; adult courts
