Juvenile Delinquency Among Balkan Youths in Switzerland and in Bosnia-Herzegovina

Notes

  1. 1.

    In the present context, juveniles are considered as originating from the Balkan region if their parents were born in one of the following countries: Albania, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Croatia, Macedonia, Montenegro, Serbia, Slovenia, Kosovo and Turkey. Among the 357 respondents falling into this category, only 60 have a parent born in Turkey (including Kurdistan)—Turks are, as these figures illustrate, a far smaller minority in Switzerland than in Germany.
