5th Biennial Conference of the International Juvenile Justice Observatory

Even before the ‘credit crunch’ of 2008 and the economic crises of 2011, the globalization of neo-liberal economic and fiscal regimes was generating growing social, economic and cultural polarization.

This has resulted in ever increasing numbers of children, young people and families finding themselves located in areas of concentrated social disadvantage on the margins of society.

These forms of offending are also evident amongst marginalised young people in other North American and European cities and, as Malcolm Stevens the IJJO’s UK Commissioner has observed, they represent….. a new and quite different entrée into crime and delinquency, with different justification values and a different perspective of safety and respect.

Therefore, the International Juvenile Justice Observatory is pleased to announce that the 5th Biennial Conference will be held at the London 2012 Olympic Park on Monday 5 to Wednesday 7 November 2012.

The conference aims to address the reality that, as a result of social and economic polarisation and global financial crises, growing numbers of children, young people and parents are finding themselves located in areas of concentrated social disadvantage on the margins of society.
