Declining juvenile crime - Jv, 2017, nr. 1

Juvenile crime declined hugely in the last ten years, not only in the Netherlands but in almost all western countries. This special issue focuses on cultural developments that potentially could explain the spectacular downward trend in juvenile crime. Various technological developments have changed the way young people spend leasure time and percept their environment . An example is the rise of smartphone use, as well as the popularity of social media and (online) computer games. Also attention is given to (indirect) effects of government policies on juvenile crime, such as the Dutch campaigns against alcohol consumption by juveniles and an educational law which mandates students to stay enrolled in school until age 18 (instead of 16) if they have not obtained at least a basic level of qualification (Startkwalificatie). Furthermore there are articles on the approach towards youth groups and on the Amsterdam Top600 Program aimed at those committing high-impact crimes.
