Abstract

This paper presents the findings from a pioneering project between a university and 10 regional youth justice services. The project resulted in the co-production, with young people, of a framework of principles termed ‘Participatory Youth Practice’ (PYP). The benefits and challenges of producing PYP are discussed. We argue that the framework - grounded in Article 12 of the UNCRC and ‘child first, offender second’ principles - is a formative step in the process of creating a youth justice system that respects and acknowledges children and young people’s rights, and enables them to meaningfully participate in decision-making processes.
