This report considers four theories regarding youth criminality; strain theory, social control, labelling and inequality, all of which impact upon youths in various forms. This is considered alongside their impact upon law and order, politics and the youth justice system. The aim is to provide a critical approach to the theories and how they affect both the individual and the youth justice system. Works by Agnew, Hirschi, Mertz and other prominent thinkers and practitioners in the relevant fields have been considered. This report has been structured to identify the fields by different sections, with a conclusion that includes recommendations for the youth justice system in general.
