An overview of Institutions for Juvenile Offenders in the Netherlands and Their Place Within the Dutch System of Justice
This paper provides the reader with a concise overview of juvenile correctional institutions in The Netherlands. These institutions are operated by either state‐ or private‐sector entities as detention centers (providing temporary custody) or remedial centers (when extended treatment is needed). The Netherlands is in the midst of significant changes in its population makeup which have had a corresponding effect on the nature of juvenile institutionalization. Specialized treatment programs and facilities will be explored in this paper. An overview of Dutch juvenile law, police, courts, and delinquency forms the background against which the reader learns about juvenile institutionalization in The Netherlands.
