How should we respond to children who break the law? Is confinement in locked institutions really the most effective way of dealing with these often damaged children? Using up-to-date research, this book details the human and financial cost of sending children to prison. It challenges current youth justice policy in the UK, which allows more and yonger children to be locked up, and recommends community alternatives to the incarceration of children, to provide a more humane and effective response to youth crime.
