- How can youth justice refocus its attention on the rights and perspectives of young people in transition? This book outlines youth justice practices in their current state of flux in the United Kingdom as New Labour policies receive direction under the vastly different Coalition Government. This book explores opportunities for a fresh orientation that places young people at the center. She outlines the risks and problems that modern society creates for them and asks when, and how, society should respond to youth behaviors that cause harm to others. The result is a bold and realistic remodelling of youth justice practices.
