This eighth issue of Criminological Highlights: Children and Youth is now available for download. This issue covers the following topics:
- Does attending an “advantaged” school affect all students equally?
- What kinds of drug treatment programs have been shown to reduce crime?
- Can we identify who is likely to become a high rate offender?
- What do research findings suggest would constitute sensible responses to offending by youths?
- What kinds of neighborhoods are safest?
- Can effective programs be designed to reduce reoffending by young violent men being released from jail?
Criminological Highlights is designed to provide an accessible look at some of the more interesting criminological research that is currently being published. These summaries of high quality, policy related, published research are produced by the Centre for Criminology & Sociolegal Studies at the University of Toronto. The Children and Youth edition constitutes a selection of these summaries (from the full edition) chosen by researchers at the National Center for Juvenile Justice and the University of Toronto. It is designed for those people especially interested in matters related to children and youth. Each issue of the Children and Youth edition contains “Headlines and Conclusions” for each of 6 articles, followed by one-page summaries of each article.
