A child’s right to participate in decision making is seminally proclaimed in Article 12, uncrc . Yet, it is often the case that the rhetoric associated with children’s “participation rights” does not reflect practice. Especially in the case of the youth justice system, significant challenges exist concerning both notions of the right to participate and how it translates into and influences what should be appropriate interventions for young people. This article draws upon three studies which critically examined the concept of participation and children’s decision making in pre-court and custody and resettlement settings. Listening to what young people said through these studies, reflections are offered concerning prevailing understandings and the operationalisation of “participation” within existing youth justice approaches. Additionally, consideration is afforded to barriers to effective participation in youth …

The Views of School Pupils on the Use of Restorative Justice in Scotland

Restorative Justice is defined as “a process of independent, facilitated contact, which supports constructive dialogue between a victim and a person who has harmed (whether this be an adult, a child, a young person or a representative of a corporate or other body) arising from an offence or alleged offence.” (Scottish Government, 2017: p6.) The Scottish Government have committed to ensuring that Restorative Justice (RJ) services are widely available across Scotland by 2023, and have an action plan in place to deliver that commitment. A key outcome set out within the action plan is to ensure that there is strong public awareness and understanding of Restorative Justice in Scotland. Under actions designed to ensure progress towards this outcome, the Scottish Government includes engagement with stakeholders across Scotland, and with specific groups, in order to identify current opinions on Restorative Justice and use these to inform key messages. As part of this activity the Scottish Government commissioned the Children and Young People’s Centre for Justice to conduct research with children, young people and families to explore their awareness, understanding and attitudes to Restorative Justice in Scotland. This report presents the findings of that research, including young people’s understandings of harm, the awareness and acceptability of Restorative Justice, and key messages for the Scottish Government about the implementation and delivery of Restorative Justice in Scotland.

The minimum age of criminal responsibility: the need for a holistic approach

The minimum age of criminal responsibility in England and Wales remains 10 years: something which has attracted criticism globally by policy makers and youth justice practitioners. Yet, the Westminster Government refuses to consider changes to minimum age of criminal responsibility, despite evidence supporting reform. This article, drawing on the United Nations Committee on the Rights of the Child’s consultation to revise General Comment No. 10 (2007) and the activities of UK devolved administrations, explores the need for minimum age of criminal responsibility reform, considering how a holistic approach focused on diversion and the provision of rights respecting appropriate interventions can create positive, even transformative outcomes for children.
