Pre-trial detention of juveniles in practice
An explorative and quantitative research of judicial decisions and population characteristics (full text only available in Dutch)
- Under what circumstances and for what reasons is pre-trial detention of juveniles requested and ordered, the enforcement of an order for pre-trial detention suspended or the order implemented in an alternative way?
- What are the characteristics of these juvenile suspects?
- How does the imposition of pre-trial detention relate to the sentence in juvenile criminal cases and does it have any ‘preliminary judicial effects’?
- Can – based on the findings related to the questions under 1, 2 and 3 – statements be made about the development of alternatives to pre-trial detention of juveniles in juvenile institutions and, if answered in the affirmative, what statements?
