Global Innovations on Youth Justice, Safety and Violence

Serial failures to redress social, legal, and economic injustice and structural racism underpin violence and disproportionally shape politics, policing, and judicial systems around the world. 

This January, we are launching a major new cross-national collaboration to tackle issues of youth violence and to promote youth safety and criminal justice reform.

The Global Innovations on Youth Violence, Safety and Justice initiative will bring together diverse stakeholders, including young adults, to address these legal, economic, and social weaknesses and inefficiencies of judicial and custodial systems across multiple jurisdictions and ultimately build more humane, inclusive and healthier societies.
