Youth, Inequities, and Justice

The most recent volume of The Future of Children is focused on “Reducing Justice System Inequality.” In this issue, researchers examine “how the justice system reinforces and exacerbates inequities among children, adolescents, and young adults and how alternative policies, programs, and practices might mitigate those effects,” according to the introductory essay.

The Future of Children is a collaboration of the Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs at Princeton University and the Brookings Institution.
