Rights Respecting? Scotland's approach to children in conflict with the law


Claire Lightowler
CYCJ

Abstract

"What the report ‘Rights Respecting? Scotland's approach to children in conflict with the law’ shows is that many children who are in conflict with the law in Scotland do not experience ‘justice’ in the true meaning of the word. There is no justice in taking traumatised children; holding them solely responsible for their actions; putting them through processes they don’t understand, and are unable to participate in; blaming and stigmatising them whilst failing to give them what they need; putting barriers in the way of loving and caring relationships; and taking existing supports and opportunities away from them."
