Focus: Child Incarceration

While some of the issues have been scratched in the small time of this blog, I feel it is naive to continue without focusing on one specific area at a time.

With this in mind, I have decided to focus the coming posts on the issue of Child Incarceration.

England and Wales have the lowest age for criminal responsibility in Western Europe, at 10 years old. They also have the highest rates of child incarceration.

The subject of youth punishment and incarceration carries its own debates and issues, on suitable punishment, restraint and responsibility. As prisons get ever closer to capacity, rehabilitation for the young must form some priority.

My research will follow.
