Abstract

Easteal examines the relationship between ethnicity and migration and juvenile crime. She considers why immigrant youth might be more at risk of engaging in criminal activities and whether this is the case. Particular issues that are relevant to immigrant youth and their interaction with the various components of the criminal justice system are surveyed. She also considers some of the changes that are needed to better adapt the juvenile justice system to the specific needs of immigrant youth.
