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.
