Youth and Social Justice

The terms 'youth' and 'crime' are often used interchangeably. Young people are typically portrayed as threats, deviant, deficient, or dangerous. In recent years, such concerns have crystallized in a myriad of interventions, reform programs and policies designed to affect their compliance, discipline, guidance, protection, control and punishment and prevent 'anti-social' and 'undesirable behaviour. This course examines anti-oppression approaches to work with youth affected by these perspectives and interventions.
