Tuesday 3rd November 2015 - SASO Edinburgh Branch - Where have all the young offenders gone?

SASO Edinburgh Branch Seminar
Tuesday 3rd November 2015 at 5.30 pm
Edinburgh Sheriff Court, Chambers Street, Edinburgh

"Where have all the young offenders gone?" 

Guest Speaker:  Ben Matthews, PhD Researcher, School of Law, University of Edinburgh.

Drawing on findings from this thesis, the talk will illustrate the substantial change in the demographic mix of people convicted in the Scottish courts since the early 1990s.  This analysis shows large declines in conviction rates for young people and, in particular, for young men, raising the question "Where have all the young offenders gone?"
