Abstract

Juvenile delinquency has always been in the center of interest, mostly because of juveniles as a sensitive category of criminal offenders. But what’s and has been even a bigger problem are the actions which should be undertaken by the state in cases when those offenders are to be sanctioned for their actions. If we analyze criminal policy from the oldest times of human civilization, we’ll conclude that juveniles were treated same as adult criminals, and in some cases even worse. Of course, such sanctioning process did not give the expecting results, existed during times of punitive measures and repression, and later was changed with preventive measures directed towards juvenile’s socialization and re - education. The Republic of Macedonia had its first special law dedicated to juvenile offenders in 2010, changing it with a new one in 2013. The latter one contains sanctions directed towards juvenile protection and education, promoting restorative justice. The paper will analyze Macedonian criminal and legal policy towards juveniles, during the period 2004 - 2016. Key words: criminal policy, juvenile, Republic of Macedonia, sanction
