This chapter is concerned with the construction and expression of responsibility by and for young offenders. It examines some of the ways in which the expression of responsibility is demanded of young people within youth justice systems, and then how young people respond to these demands. The data reveals that young people involved in the youth justice system have a strong desire for having their expression of responsibility beyond their criminal case recognized and made visible— especially as it relates to their social and familial relationships and as it is grounded in their social context.
