Equalities and Human Rights Committee Age of Criminal Responsibility (Scotland) Bill: Submission from the Centre for Youth & Criminal Justice

Centre for Youth & Criminal Justice

Research output: Book/ReportOther report

Abstract

The UN Committee on the Rights of the Child recommends that the age of criminal responsibility is a minimum of 12 years old, which the Bill adheres to. What are your views on the appropriate age of criminal responsibility in Scotland?

The Centre for Youth and Criminal Justice (CYCJ) conducts research and supports the development of practice and policy across youth and criminal justice. Over the past five years we have undertaken a range of research projects to support the consideration of the age of criminal responsibility, including international case studies about how different jurisdictions approach the age of criminal responsibility, and a survey about workforce development needs as a consequence of any change. CYCJ staff have also been members of the advisory group established to investigate the age of criminal responsibility, and continue to be involved in supporting the workstreams developing specific areas of practice to support any legislative change.
