Annotation: This material produced during the 64th International Training course on the Quest for a Better System and Administration of Juvenile Justice encompasses experts' and participants' papers as well as reports on five workshops and four course sessions. Subjects include the juvenile justice systems and processing of various countries in addition to the effectiveness of juvenile treatment methods.
Abstract: One of the experts' papers considers juvenile crime patterns in the 1980's, juvenile justice procedures, alternatives to custody for juvenile offenders, and the handling of serious juvenile offenders. Other experts' papers address diversion strategies in European juvenile justice systems and the nature and effectiveness of positive treatment programs. Participants' papers review the backgrounds of the juvenile justice systems, juvenile processing, and juvenile treatment for Burma, Fiji, and Singapore. The five workshop reports cover (1) the police role in dealing with juvenile delinquency, (2) the prosecution of juveniles, (3) the juvenile court system and proceedings, (4) juvenile treatment, and (5) juvenile delinquency in general. Reports on the various course sessions encompass the investigation and prosecution of juvenile delinquency, juvenile offender adjudication, and the institutional and noninstitutional treatment of juvenile delinquents. Experts' papers include relevant tabular data and reference listings, and many of the participants' papers contain data on the subject country's juvenile crime patterns. For the experts' and participants' papers, see NCJ 99088-93.
