Handholds for the drafting of a periodic trend report regarding at-risk and criminal youth and a survey of approaches (full text only available in Dutch)

Summary

The study at hand has centred around three research questions. These questions deal with the theoretical knowledge of and the approach to juvenile delinquency, as well as with indicators that may help produce a picture of at-risk and criminal youth (groups). It concerns the following three research questions:
1a. What are recent and significant insights in the literature regarding at-risk and criminal youth (groups)?
1b. What regional approaches to at-risk and criminal youth (groups) are there?
2. What available, theoretically substantiated and measurable indicators offer relative, quantitative information with regard to: the nature and scope of juvenile delinquency in the Netherlands; the nature, volume, qualification and geographical distribution of problematic youth groups in the Netherlands; the approaches to at-risk and criminal youth (groups) and the results/effects thereof?
