Abstract

This article is based on original research in Vietnam and is focused on explaining the offending behaviour of young people on educational programmes incarcerated in educational institutions. The primary research includes a self-report survey of young people in custody (n=2,009) in the four national educational institutions as well as interviews with young people (n=98) and staff (n=34). The research concludes that the interaction of problematic family circumstances; community based issues – specifically on-line gaming; as well as individual disposition; within a context of the problems created by rapid socio-economic change, explains the offending of these young people.
