The Effectiveness of the Juvenile Justice System
Over the past three decades, global Juvenile Justice systems have undergone enormous changes. Such changes have been both in the forms of structure and processes that guarantee outcomes to the cases. The paper shall look into the effectiveness of the global juvenile system taking various case study states and nations to ascertain the standing whether the systems of justice through the juvenile systems have been a success or a redundant process. According to the study by Seigle, Walsh & Weber (2014), it remains incumbent of the government, the courts, and the justice correctional facilities of the developing systems to consider various principles for there to achieve the desired inmate correctional outcomes.
The study on the effectiveness of the system shall take the form of a qualitative study. Data shall be collected through interviews and survey studies. Secondary data shall be collected from past peer-reviewed journal articles and legal publications to support the findings of the study. The sample population shall include three juvenile systems from every identified nation. The chosen nations shall include, the US, Britain, South Africa, and Singapore. The study shall be on a global review hence the move to choose at least a country from every four of the major continents Americas, Europe, Africa, and Asia. Observable correlational variables in the study shall focus entirely on the percentage inmates who find themselves in correctional facilities after serving in juvenile systems. Through the survey questionnaires and inmate interviews, the study shall seek to examine the inmates’ feedback justly. The important variables in the study shall include the age of detainees, their view of the system whether it is working or not working.
