Abstract: Taking youth anti-social behaviour as its focus, and drawing upon a recently completed study of the operation of the tiered approach to youth anti-social behaviour in Swansea, this article examines the important effects on youth justice of both devolution and the mediation of policy by practitioners. The discussion of the policy agendas of the Westminster and Welsh Assembly Governments and the accounts of stakeholders in Swansea is structured around the following themes: de-escalation and diversion; consistency and avoiding net-widening; inclusionary welfarism and multi-agency partnership; and voluntarism, engagement and compliance.
