Abstract

This paper has a two-fold purpose. Firstly, it suggests that an examination of current trends in the juvenile justice system of England and Wales sustains the viewpoint that there has been, during the last decade, a considerable increase in the degree of surveillance and coercion of large sections of the youth population. Secondly, it attempts to outline a positive role for social work professionals working in the juvenile justice system which may help to counter these tendencies and reconceptualise general thinking on problems of youth crime and juvenile justice penology.
