Human Rights and Penal Violence in the Youth Justice Sphere: Contested Discourses and Contradictory Narratives - Global, National, and Local

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

International human rights standards - ratified by nation states on a near-global scale - provide that the penal detention of children and young people should be a ‘measure of last resort’ and ‘for the shortest appropriate period of time’. The same standards state that: ‘every child deprived of liberty shall be treated with humanity and respect’ and that no child shall be subjected to ‘cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment’. Despite the provisions of such standards, however, child/youth imprisonment is on the rise in many countries and increasing numbers of young prisoners are routinely exposed to violations and violence. This paper will seek to explore the contested nature of penal discourse by illuminating the stark contradictions between human-rights-talk and the lived experiences of incarcerated children and young people. The analytical lens will focus on global, national and local trends of contemporary penality in the youth justice sphere.
