Fourth Annual Rutgers Conference on Youth Development and Juvenile Justice

The Fourth Annual Conference on Youth Development and Juvenile Justice will highlight the critical emerging issue of social media with respect to how contemporary adolescents organize their social activities and behavior. The "digital street" is the new gathering place, with smart phone technologies and social media applications virtually paving new paths for social interactions and in turn creating new opportunities for constructive engagements as well as problem behavior. At the same time, social media sites have hit the radar of law enforcement, and the legal and ethical issues surrounding social media surveillance pose interesting challenges to managing the "digital street" safely and effectively. All the while, youth who already have been arrested and detained still endure the difficult conditions of confinement in the juvenile justice and sometimes adult criminal justice systems. Join the Center on Youth Violence and Juvenile Justice at Rutgers-Newark for an important scholarly event where all of these issues will be on the table.
