Debating gender and youth justice

Gender and youth justice will be debated at a joint seminar hosted by the Centre for Youth & Criminal Justice (CYCJ) and the School of Social Work and Social Policy at the University of Strathclyde.

At ‘Sugar n Spice: Are we morally policing the girls?’ Michele Burman, Professor of Criminology and Deputy Head, School of Social and Political Sciences at the University of Glasgow, and founding co-director of the Scottish Centre for Crime and Justice Research (SCCJR) will discuss whether the decisions that are made regarding young people’s futures are affected by gender prejudices and stereotypes.

Joining Professor Burman in debating this issue will be a panel of experts, including Anne Carpenter McKechnie, Consultant Forensic Clinical Psychologist for Tomorrow’s Women Glasgow and Carole Dearie, who is a Practice Development Advisor for CYCJ, seconded from the Good Shepherd Centre. Following the talk, the panel will open the discussion to audience participation.
