  1. How can we predict which youths who offend as adolescents will still be committing offences in 10 years?
  2. Are increases in the concentration of undocumented immigrants associated with increases in crime?
  3. Are youths from high socioeconomic families protected from the harmful effects of criminal justice contact?
  4. Are some people’s lives made more difficult by prohibiting employers from asking job applicants if they have a criminal record?
  5. How can police actions with youth lead youths to believe that violence is justified?
  6. How does pretrial detention affect crime?

These summaries of high quality, policy related, published research are produced by the Centre for Criminology & Sociolegal Studies at the University of Toronto. The Children and Youth edition constitutes a selection of these summaries (from the full edition) chosen by researchers at the National Center for Juvenile Justice and the University of Toronto. It is designed for those people especially interested in matters related to children and youth. Each issue of the Children and Youth edition contains "Headlines and Conclusions" for each of 6 articles, followed by one-page summaries of each article.
