A Positive Youth Justice System

David Muhammad
National Institute for Criminal Justice Reform


Overwhelming evidence shows that involvement in the juvenile justice system in and of itself produces negative outcomes for young people (Aizer & Doyle, 2015; Gatti, Tremblay and Vitar, 2009; Hart, 2013). If we were creating the juvenile justice system from scratch with the intention of developing youth, supporting families, not doing harm, restoring victims, and increasing public safety, it is unlikely that system would have any resemblance to what exists today. Such a system would be rooted in communities, based in restorative justice practices, and make significant investments in the youth, their families, and the communities in which they live. The National Institute for Criminal Justice Reform (NICJR) is working on the design of such a transformed system. In the meantime, we offer this paper as an enormous step in the right direction, a comprehensive examination of what a fully reformed juvenile justice system looks like in the current context.
