Tackling Youth Crime

A recent wave of attacks has rocketed the topic of crime among young people to the top of the political agenda, especially in the state of Hesse, which is preparing for elections. DW-WORLD takes a look at the issue.

In light of several recent incidents of violence committed by youths, crime among young people -- closely tied with the integration of immigrants -- has slipped into the spotlight in Germany as politicians look for solutions. The matter has even taken center-stage in the state election campaign in Hesse.

DW-WORLD.DE takes a closer look at the discussion and the issues at stake. Don't forget to share your own opinion with us by clicking on the links below.
