This publication presents the results of a joint study conducted by the American Civil Liberties Union and Human Rights Watch that included interviews with 127 individuals who were detained in jails or prisons across various U.S. states while under the age of 18. The authors looked at how often youth are placed in solitary confinement, the conditions of these confinements, and concludes that the "solitary confinement [of youth] is costly, ineffective, and harmful." Along with an explanation of the study's methodology and a description of corrections practices across the U.S., the authors present alternatives to the solitary confinement of youth and key recommendations to the federal and state governments. Available on the Web for free.
