    Abstract

    In 2010 the authors were members of a team which was invited to carry out a review of youth justice policy and practice in the Channel Island of Jersey. This article describes the process of the review, its major recommendations, and what happened as a result. Substantial improvements in Jersey’s youth justice system in the three years following the review suggest that it had a positive impact on outcomes, although its impact on legislation was limited. The article discusses some possible reasons for the positive impact, and points to similarities with other small or devolved jurisdictions.
