Abstract

This chapter describes the contexts within which youth justice has emerged in
Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland in recent decades. Although the
respective systems are small by international standards, collectively they incorporate a number of legal, philosophical, policy and practice standpoints in
responding to young people in conflict with the law. Commencing in the mid to
late 1990s in Northern Ireland and somewhat later in the Republic of Ireland,
both systems have, in diverse circumstances, undergone varying degrees of
change. In exploring these contexts, the purpose is to shed light on the influences that have shaped the respective systems in both jurisdictions including the agencies responsible for supervising young offenders in the community. Piecing together these macro-level influences provides the foundation from which practitioners’ responses to offenders’ behaviour, including non-compliance, are explored in the course of supervising young people in the community in later chapters.
