From Juvie Jails to Children-First: Leveraging Global Learning on Justice-Involved Youth

Approaches to justice-involved youth vary markedly around the world, which is evident in our respective purposes, policy-settings, and practice. However, finding time and space to engage with ideas and people from other countries, can yield valuable learning and insights. Moreover, such engagement not only enriches our understanding of the global justice-involved youth landscape, but also sheds light on our own system’s strengths, challenges, and opportunities.
