Youth Justice in Jersey

Produced by the Probation and After-care (Non-executives and legal departments)
Authored by Nicki Wray and published on 31 Dec 2010
Prepared internally, no external cost


​Youth Justice has long been at the forefront of the political agenda in UK jurisdictions. The island of Jersey, despite its proximity to mainland UK has its own separate government and shares no political affiliation with other UK jurisdictions. The aim of this research is to explore the processes and practices of youth justice in Jersey. By undertaking two semistructured, semi-formal interviews with senior youth justice officials it aims to examine how youth justice in Jersey has been developed, how it manages the principles of welfare and justice and to what extent if at all, legislation has been affected or influenced by youth justice policies elsewhere. By taking a comparative approach this piece will explore the positive and negative aspects of youth justice processes in Jersey when held up against the backdrop of other jurisdictions.
