Fleur Souverein tells us about the success of small scale community based juvenile justice facilities in the Netherlands.
Fleur Souverein is currently completing a PhD at the department of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry (Amsterdam University Medical Centre; https://www.vumc.nl/zorg/informatie-v...) in collaboration with the Academic Collaborative Center for (at-risk) Justice Involved Youth (AWRJ; www.awrj.nl) in the Netherlands. The focus of her project lies on the feasibility and efficacy of small scale community based juvenile justice facilities and the conceptualization of relational security in a youth justice setting. Aligned with her PhD, Fleur leads an intensive three year evaluation project of a community based juvenile justice facility in Amsterdam. This project is subsidized by the Ministry of Justice and Security, supervised by Prof. A. Popma, Dr. E. Mulder and Mr. Dr. L van Domburgh.
