Abstract

The objective of juvenile justice is to treat youth who have been deviant and can be rehabilitated into the society so that their integration into the adult life is smooth. Various reasons which lead to juvenile behaviour have been stated in the article. The view that the care and protection of the juvenile offender in an institutional setting where deprivation of liberty is seen not as a punishment, but as a procedure for the reintegration of the juvenile into society is promoted.
