This chapter summarizes the main points of the previous chapters and some of their implications. It also ponders ways in which policy makers and the public might be convinced to adopt these proposals. Initial resistance to a model that appears too lenient (to some) and too vulnerable to abuse (to others) can be overcome by emphasis on its crime prevention, therapeutic, and fiscal advantages.

Keywords: juvenile justice system; juvenile offenders; crime prevention; fiscal advantages; therapeutic advantages
