This introductory chapter first sets out the book's three main goals. The first is to increase both the number of juvenile justice systems that are profiled in English-language scholarship and the variety of geographical, political, and religious contexts in which juvenile courts have been observed. The second is to gain knowledge of the operations of juvenile justice using the double-comparison perspective that seeks to explore the special features of a nation's juvenile system by comparing it to the operations and ideology of the criminal justice system that it adjoins. The third is to consider whether there is a core contrast between juvenile courts around the world and the criminal justice systems that they adjoin.
