Title:
Exploring recent trends in youth justice reconvictions: a challenge to the complexity thesis
Authors:
Bateman, Tim; Wigzell, A.
Abstract:
Abstract In recent years it has become accepted wisdom that children subject to youth justice intervention, in England and Wales, are more complex than previously, as a consequence of a substantial rise in diversion from the system that filters out children with lower levels of need and less entrenched offending. This ‘complexity’ thesis has been used to explain rises in rates of reoffending. This article demonstrates that the patterns shown in the reoffending data are not those that would be predicted by the complexity thesis. Indeed the data suggests that some groups of children may be less entrenched in offending than hitherto.
