The campaign to End Child Imprisonment has today published Principles and minimum expectations for children deprived of their liberty, which provides a framework for addressing harmful behaviour and supporting vulnerable children outside of prison settings.

Dr David Scott interviews campaigners who have been personally affected by the issue, and Carolyne Willow, Director of Article 39.

The youth justice system has become the primary service provider to a large number of young people with brain injuries and other brain impairments, according to a new report published today by the Centre for Crime and Justice Studies.
This report, by Dr Pratiba Chitsabesan, a Consultant Child and Adolescent Psychiatrist, and Dr Nathan Hughes of the University of Birmingham, discusses the over-representation of young people with clinical disorders in the youth justice system.
