Abstract

In this policy essay, I will suggest that there are at least two reasons to doubt the efficacy of monetary penalties in bringing about rehabilitation and restoration in the juvenile justice context. First, I will question whether economic sanctions are truly restorative or rehabilitative. Second, I will discuss the relevance of young offenders’ capacity to pay and the impact this has on restoration and rehabilitation.
