Disproportionality in Youth Justice
JUSTICE carried out research to find out why Black, Asian and minority ethnic people are over-represented in the youth justice system.
Initial Project Outline: JUSTICE will examine the causes of BAME disproportionality in the Youth Justice System (YJS) of England and Wales. It will make practical recommendations with a view to reducing that disproportionality. In addition, it will seek to ensure that children are not needlessly criminalised by improving the attitudes, processes and procedures in youth justice.
