Abstract

This report traces the development of youth justice policy in Northern Ireland since the publication of the Youth Justice Review (YJR) (2011). The report has been jointly commissioned by four organisations who work with and advocate on behalf of children and young people who have contact with the criminal justice system: The Children’s Law Centre, Include Youth, NIACRO and VOYPIC. The report authors were tasked with tracing the developments towards implementation of the Youth Justice Review’s recommendations with a specific focus from 2015 onwards, which was when the last analysis on the progress of the implementation of the recommendations was published by the Criminal Justice Inspectorate (CJINI, 2015). By this time, although a number of recommendations had been progressed, there were evident gaps in the implementation of others and a view that the momentum from the Review had waned.
