In this chapter, three particular studies regarding juvenile delinquency and justice are analyzed. The first study, “Research on Social Causes of Juvenile Crime,” is the most current research that looks into social causes of juvenile crime. It was commissioned by the Security Bureau. The second study is entitled “Culturally Specific Causes of Delinquency: Implication for Juvenile Justice in Hong Kong” and it accounts for culturally specific questions. As the Chinese account for more than 90 percent of the population in Hong Kong, this may be perceived as a cause for delinquency. The last study, “ Pathways to Delinquency in Hong Kong,” identifies some of the pathways in which early interventions may be formulated for youth crime prevention.
