 Migrants and juvenile delinquency:  

Lack of social bonds to society among migrant youth

Many young people with a migrant background feel less attachment to their social environment and institutions. Their marginalized position is often seen as an explanation for their over-representation in problem behaviours such as crime, drug use or school dropouts. Migrant families live more often in disadvantaged areas because of their high levels of unemployment and economic deprivation, and these areas suffer from high crime levels. Residential turnover further weakens social bonds and social control in these areas. This paper uses the third sweep of the International Self-Report Delinquency Study to examine whether there is a difference in the bonding of young migrants with their family, school, teacher, friend and neighbourhood compared with people who have been born within the country. It assesses whether differences in bonding explain the over representation of migrant youth in problem behaviour as delinquency, substance use and truancy.
