This is a descriptive, cross-sectional study of classroom violence, the main instruments of which emerged from analysis of the most relevant bibliography, in the four state primary schools of the San Felipe corregimiento (administrative subdivision). In this precinct, which has the highest rate of violence in Panama City, a representative sample was selected of 319 fifth-and-sixth-grade pupils in primary education.

The investigation aims to discover the way in which the phenomenon of violence arises on the part of teachers, family members and students, according to the views of victims, aggressors and witnesses. This is because it is observed that, with simple changes in rules and methodology, significant results can be achieved in controlling this problem, and therefore controlling violence in society, which is perceived as alarming and on the increase.

It could also be necessary to take measures in other sectors of society, such as security services, the media and the political and administrative authorities. However, schools cannot avoid the great responsibility that falls to them in delivering Panamanians that are capable of controlling their emotions at all times, and in promoting dialogue and constructive outcomes from conflicts.

The State formally begins to teach children in schools from the age of four onwards, which is why this essential stage is decisive when it comes to dealing with emotional difficulties; simultaneously introducing teaching of the English language and the use of new technologies, which provides a feeling of achievement and encourages the continuation of study.

The general aim of this study is to characterize those minors in detention centres from the Madrid Community Agency for the Re-education and Re-insertion of Young Offenders according to their delinquent characteristics, and at the same time, validate an instrument known as IGI-J (Inventory for the Management and Intervention with Young People), which allows us to evaluate static and dynamic risk factors to explain delinquent behaviour, as well as to develop educational-therapeutic intervention objectives.

Esta investigación comprende el estudio de los expedientes calificados por las fiscalías de menores de Catalunya como hechos de violencia física sobre familiares, violencia psicológica sobre familiares y maltrato familiar, en los que están imputados los jóvenes que tienen una edad comprendida entre los 14 y 18 años como presuntos autores de los hechos y a sus familias como victimas. Comprende el análisis de todos los expedientes abiertos y calificados por la fiscalía desde el 1 de enero del año 2001 hasta el 31 de diciembre del año 2003. La motivación para realizar esta investigación surgió por el aumento de expedientes, pero también, por la especificidad y complejidad del conflicto que llega a la justicia. El presunto responsable del hecho y la víctima conviven en el mismo domicilio, y tienen un grado de parentesco, casi siempre de primer grado, y en las actuaciones legales asociadas al hecho, la víctima acompaña al agresor a la comisaría de policía, en la declaración ante el fiscal, en la entrevista con el equipo. También hemos considerado que era importante conocer la percepción que los profesionales que intervienen en algún momento del proceso, (jueces, fiscales, policía, equipos de asesoramiento, educadores de medio abierto y de centros y los abogados).

The young prison population in Greece continues to grow. The starting point was that there has been a conflict, or ‘crime’ and we would like to react to it. In our response we use the paradigm of 'restorative justice'. The purpose of that study was to explore why we chose this concept, and what is its possible impact on those who have been involved in the conflict with special regard to the juvenile offender.
