Book Review: Whyte, B (2009) ‘Youth Justice in Practice: Making a Difference’ reviewed by Dr. Theo Gavrielides

Despite being one of the most well researched academic disciplines, youth justice and its ever expanding literature continue to fail in two regards. Firstly, there is a developing gap between public perception and evidence-based depiction of youth crime. Secondly, scholarly debates are rarely reflected in youth justice policy and legislation. This failure has an impact on practice and the democratic participation of young people. A book that is based on evidence and makes the argument that youth justice practice needs to be framed within human rights is very welcome indeed.
