About this Item

Neuware - This comprehensive reference work presents inside information on the Juvenile Justice-systems in 19 different countries, both in EU-member states (old and new ones) as well as in the United States and Canada. The book is the result of research conducted by a group of outstanding researchers, who are concerned about some of the trends in Juvenile Justice in the last two decades, where the border between criminal justice and Juvenile Justice tends to fade. The comparative introduction highlights similarities as well as differences between the various systems, distinguishing between clusters of countries, which appear to cluster together in their approach, as is also shown in the structure of the book. In particular, essential differences in Juvenile Justice approaches are found between the Anglo-Saxon countries and continental Europe. The former have a more formal justice approach, with a strong emphasis on the juvenile s accountability, just desert -principles, and retribution, while the latter are still operating with a welfare philosophy, of which the German law and practice are perhaps the best example. Some special systems, such as the Scottish Hearing system and the Scandinavian model also are presented. 549 pp. Englisch. Bookseller Inventory # 9781402044007

This comprehensive reference work presents inside information on the Juvenile Justice-systems in 19 different countries, both in old and new EU-member states and in the United States and Canada.

From the Back Cover:

This comprehensive reference work presents an in-depth analysis on the juvenile justice systems of 19 different countries, both in EU-member states (old and new) and in the United States and Canada. The book is the result of research conducted by a group of outstanding scholars working in the field of juvenile justice. The book reflects a collective concern about trends in juvenile justice over the past two decades; trends that have begun to blur the difference between criminal and juvenile justice. The introduction highlights similarities and differences between the various systems, identifying three clusters of countries with a similar approach to juvenile justice. In particular, differences are found between the Anglo-Saxon countries, and continental Europe. The former have a more formal "justice" approach, with a strong emphasis on the accountability of juveniles, "just desert" principles, and retribution, while the latter still operate on a "welfare" philosophy. Two special systems, the Scottish Hearing system and the Scandinavian model, are presented as well.
