(p.125) Conclusion
Multi-Agency Public Protection Arrangements and Youth Justice

Kerry Baker

This chapter brings together the central themes of the book and raises a number of questions about the ways in which young people are treated by criminal justice agencies, and whether Multi-Agency Public Protection Arrangements (MAPPA) as currently conceptualised are an appropriate system for effectively working with young people who have committed serious offences. It also highlights areas where further information is required and demonstrates that the study of MAPPA is a fertile ground for furthering debates around risk and rights. Finally, it argues that lessons can be learnt from the implementation of MAPPA in Scotland and Northern Ireland, which can usefully inform the ongoing development of youth justice policy in England and Wales.

Keywords:   Multi-Agency Public Protection Arrangements, young people, criminal justice, serious offences, risk, rights, Scotland, youth justice, Northern Ireland, England
