Description

This is the 11th annual symposium on social work with juvenile offenders held at the Inter University Centre, Croatia. The symposium brings together academics in the field of youth justice and post- graduate practitioners working in youth justice systems from the international community. This year's symposium explores the important role critical research plays in understanding the development and management of youth justice systems. Contributors are encouraged to critically explore the processes by which criminological research and knowledge is constructed and the extent to which it is meaningfully employed to inform practice in youth justice. Participants and contributors are encouraged to pay particular attention to issues of power, ethics and children's rights. The international nature of the symposium offers an excellent opportunity for colleagues from the international academic and practice communities to exchange ideas.
