June 15, 2022

Dr. Sally Stevens, Research Professor with SIROW recently published an article titled “The Value of Justice-Involved Youth: Accountability Through Technology-Driven Policies and Practices”. This article examines how juvenile justice-involved youth are held accountable for their behavior and the potential for some technology-driven policies and practices to be harmful to their wellbeing. While many technologies, such as video conferencing, are thought to be helpful, others such as electronic monitoring lack research on the impact they may have on youth. While juvenile courts hold youth accountable for their behavior, courts must also be accountable to youth by employing data-informed policies and practices that advance the health and well-being of youth.
