Indignities of Order Maintenance: Children, Law, and the Police
Juvenile Justice Colloquium
This colloquium, sponsored by the Department of Criminal Justice and Criminology, the Center for the Human Rights of Children, and the Civitas ChildLaw Center will discuss how interactions between the police and youth, especially minority youth, can shape how the latter understand and react to the law and to social norms. It will also argue the need for a jurisprudence of dignity that exports the qualities of fair and respectful treatment to settings in which the police interact with juveniles. Such a jurisprudence recognizes that dignity has the power to shape or poison youth views of state authority and their relations to the law well into their adult lives.
