Some Principles of Good Practice in Juvenile Confinement

Joachim Walter
IJJO. First International Conference on Juvenile Justice. Salamanca 2004.


Communication submitted in the First International Conference of Juvenile Justice "Juvenile Justice and the Prevention of Juvenile Delinquency in a Globalized World". Salamanca 2004.

The author starts from delinquency prevention and resocialisation as aims of juvenile correctional institutions. The means to achieve these aims is education in the sense of helping the inmate to develop himself to a responsible citizen without violating the rights of others. Differenciated recidivism rates suggest that different educational measures in juvenile confinement are related to lower or higher recidivism rates. The conclusion is to augment those probably efficient measures and to avoid designs of confinement, that are suspected to increase recidivism rates.
