Editorial Comment - Young People in Custody

Harrison, Karen; Johnston, Helen


Karen Harrison


This Special Issue brings together a range of articles by academics, practitioners and charitible organisations concerned with young people in custody.  The issue is organised into three sections: the development of penal policy towards children and young people over time and contemporary use of imprisonment; young people's experiences of custodial settings; and, the operation of particular regimes or aspects of regimes for young people.  Many of the articles draw on research which allows for young people and the people who work with them to express their experiences in their own words.
