Project Title:

A Prioritized Plan to Implement a Developmental Approach in Juvenile Justice Reform
PIN: DBASSE-CLAJ-13-02        

Major Unit:

Division of Behavioral and Social Sciences and Education

Sub Unit: Committee on Law and Justice

RSO: Lee, Arlene

Subject/Focus Area: Behavioral and Social Sciences

Project Scope
An ad hoc committee will be convened to identify, assess and prioritize strategies and policies to effectively reform the juvenile justice system building on the recommendations from the 2013 report, Reforming Juvenile Justice: A Developmental Approach. The committee will assess the federal Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention's (OJJDP) activities and internal capacities to implement its legislative mandates on juvenile justice systems, policies, and practices; and, consult with experts and practitioners in the field of juvenile justice. The committee will also examine existing literature in three areas; implementation science, cross-agency collaboration and appropriate criteria for prioritization in the context of juvenile justice reform, including cost-benefit and cost-effectiveness analysis where applicable. The study will conclude with a report documenting the committee's findings and proposing recommendations for OJJDP and, where appropriate other federal agencies, to implement a reform plan using a developmental approach. The committee may address budgetary considerations and recommendations from other OJJDP plans.

The project is sponsored by the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention, Annie E. Casey Foundation, and John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation. A consensus report will be completed by July 2014.

Project Duration: 9 months
