📙 Children in Custody: Anglo-Russian Perspectives by Mary McAuley — free pdf


Despite their very different histories, societies, political and legal systems, Russia and the UK stand out as favoring a punitive approach to young law breakers, imprisoning many more children than any other European countries. The book is based on the author's primary research in Russia in which she visited a dozen closed institutions from St Petersburg to Krasnoyarsk and on similar research in England and Northern Ireland. The result is a unique study of how attitudes to youth crime and criminal justice, the political environment and the relationship between state and society have interacted to influence the treatment of young offenders. McAuley's account of the twists and turns in policy towards youth illuminate the extraordinary history of Russia in the twentieth century and the making of social policy in Russia today. It is also the first study to compare the UK (excluding Scotland because of its separate juvenile justice system) with Russia, a comparison which highlights the factors responsible for the making of 'punitive' policy in the two societies. McAuley places the Russian and UK policies in a European context, aiming to reveal how other European countries manage to put so many fewer children behind bars. Mary McAuley is an Associate of the International Centre for Prison Studies, King's College, London. She was Fellow in Politics at St Hilda's College Oxford until 1995, with earlier posts at the universities of York and Essex. From 1996 to 2002 she ran the Ford Foundation's Moscow Office.
