Risk and needs assessment of juvenile offenders is essential in order to determine which (intensity of) intervention is required. Both the application of the risk principle and the needs principle requires a reliable and valid assessment of the recidivism risk and of the criminogenic needs. Structured assessment instruments are necessary for this purpose. Therefore, a set of new instruments (Landelijk Instrumentarium Jeugdstrafrechtsketen, LIJ) is developed for the Dutch juvenile justice system. LIJ aims to improve the assessment of juvenile delinquents and the referral to appropriate evidence-based interventions.
