Movement Restriction Conditions (MRCs) and Youth Justice in Scotland: Are We There Yet?

Fiona Dyer, Stewart Simpson

Research output: Book/ReportOther report

Abstract

Movement Restriction Conditions (MRCs) were introduced in Scotland as part of the Antisocial Behaviour etc. (Scotland) Act 2004. Although as highlighted by Orr (2013), their use to reduce recidivism has not been proven, they are part of Scottish Justice Legislation within the Children’s Hearings (Scotland) Act 2011 as an alternative to secure care. This paper, written by Stewart Simpson and Fiona Dyer, builds on the previous research undertaken by Orr (2013) and considers whether the use of MRCs in Scotland has changed during the past three years.
