• An effective tool if used appropriately : but what is an appropriate use of Asbos for young people?

      Bateman, Tim (Emerald Group Publishing Limited, 2007)
      This article considers the use of Asbos as a response to problematic behaviour exhibited by children and young people under the age of 18 years. Drawing on research conducted on behalf of the Youth Justice Board, it suggests that the perceptions of key professionals involved in the Asbo process may have a greater impact on their use than the level of anti-social behaviour in an area.
