Conclusion: Towards a Transnational History of Youth in Justice Systems

  • Jean Trépanier
  • Xavier Rousseaux
Chapter
Part of the World Histories of Crime, Culture and Violence book series (WHCCV)

Abstract

By way of conclusion, this chapter summarises some general trends from the various case studies of the book from 1815 to 1950. It addresses the long-term trend from punishment to welfare, discusses the institutional diversity masked by a similar terminology, and underlines the new social actors, their roles played in the juvenile justice arena, focusing on the issues of gender. Finally, the editors highlight three main contributions of the period under investigation to a future transnational history of juvenile justice: the complex roles of the state, the specific experience of wartime and the ambiguous functions of theories in the everyday practice of the juvenile courts and institutions.
