About this Unit
In 2019 this unit replaced by 102699 - Youth Justice and Practice. This unit develops an understanding of the complexity of juvenile crime by addressing the historical, political, cultural and socio-economic factors associated with youth crime, constructions of youth, and, governmental strategies for regulating and preventing juvenile crime. An inter-disciplinary framework is used to develop a critical appreciation of the impacts of the regulation of particular youth groups that are over-represented in the juvenile justice system, including Aboriginal youth and other racial/ethnic minority youth. Lastly, the unit will critically assess a range of official interventions for working with young people within the juvenile justice system.
