Title:
Reoffending as a measure of effectiveness of youth justice intervention: a critical note
Authors:
Bateman, Tim
Abstract:
Figures published by the Ministry of Justice show significant progress against New Labour's targets to reduce reoffending by young people within the youth justice system. The outgoing government was, unsurprisingly, quick to infer that such findings constituted corroboration of the improved effectiveness of youth justice practice under their administration. This article considers whether such an inference is warranted and discusses other potential explanations of the data.
