In this article, we will try to compare how different actors view/experience current prevention practices of youth delinquency in Hungary.
We use both qualitative and quantitative data regarding the views of the professionals involved in working with young people and 14–17 year old students’ opinions on existing prevention programs on youth violence and delinquent behaviour and their perceived effectiveness.
The repressive approach, although increasingly important, is not considered very effective. The educational system seems to be the best framework for prevention, but also community development should be important, as useful freetime activities and locations for such are widely missing. Central policy making efforts could be useful to introduce elements of crime prevention (in the broadest sense) in the school curricula. There is a significant difference between the opinion of students and professionals regarding the role of teachers in prevention activities. While experts consider that teachers should play an increased role in prevention in the future, young people are often quite sceptical about these actors.
A unique feature of this article is that it brings together and can reflect opinions of the actors involved in prevention.Ključne besede: youth delinquency, crime prevention programs, efficiency, HungaryObjavljeno: 23.04.2020; Ogledov: 325; Prenosov: 10 Povezava na datotekoGradivo ima več datotek!
