The Child and Family Research Lab - Juvenile Justice and Ethnic Disproportionality
Juvenile justice and ethnic disproportionality projects look at issues for Hawaii's youth who are involved in the justice system, with a particular emphasis on looking at ethnic disparities among Asian and Pacific Islander youth in Hawaii. For example, in collaboration with the Office of Youth Services, Hawaii, the juvenile justice and ethnic disproportionality lab examines Hawaii state data on ethnic disproportionality, and experiences within the system based on gender, age, ethnicity, and type of offense within Hawaii's Juvenile Justice System. In addition, systemic factors at various levels (micro, mezzo, macro) are also examined on their contribution to delinquency.
