Special Issue "Youth Violence, Crime and Juvenile Justice"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 May 2024 | Viewed by 2608
Youth violence is a global phenomenon with far-reaching deleterious effects on individuals, families, and communities. While the prevalence and manifestations of youth violence may vary in different regions, it remains a significant concern in many societies. Factors such as social inequality, access to firearms, exposure to violence in media, and the influence of peer groups can contribute to youth violence globally. Addressing youth violence requires a multifaceted approach that considers the unique challenges and circumstances in each country or community. International collaborations, research-sharing, and the exchange of best practices can help inform effective strategies to prevent and reduce youth violence on a global scale.
