Juvenile delinquency and juvenile justice: Causes of crime and delinquency in Namibia - Readings from data on age-crime distribution.
MetadataShow full item record
This presentation is going to explore, under the broad title “Juvenile Delinquency and Juvenile Justice” child crime in Namibia, its prevalence and incidence with reference to data from selected magisterial districts. Addressed will be the age-crime distribution for Windhoek, Mariental, Oshakati, Ondangwa, and Opuwo, those distributions assessed against the backdrop of Terry E. Moffit’s dual taxonomic theory of anti-social behaviour. This hall provide us with some insight as to where child crime occurs mostly, and also whether and under what circumstances it can be expected that some child offenders are led into chronic criminality, as opposed to the large majority of delinquents who will desist spontaneously upon reaching late adolescence, and what – accordingly – an appropriate meaningful social other than punishment/cj-reaction should be.
