Abstract

This study is part of the JUST COVID 19 project (Universidade Católica Portuguesa), in partnership with the YO&JUST project (Universidade NOVA de Lisboa) and its overall objective is to understand the impact of the COVID 19 pandemic on the execution of educational measures in the community. Although this phenomenon is recent, international studies have already highlighted its impact on justice systems and juvenile delinquency (Gordon, Klose, & Lyttle Storrod, 2020; Buchanan, Castro, Kushner, & Krohn, 2020; McCarthy, Homel, Ogilvie & Allard, 2021). However, at national level, there is a lack of research on this topic, thus making this study an added value to understand this reality and subsequently bring contributions that safeguard the interests of children and young people. In order to achieve the defined objectives, interviews were carried out with seven professionals working in the Portuguese juvenile justice system, particularly in the metropolitan areas of Porto and Lisbon and in Alto Alentejo. The Annual Statistical Reports of the Direção Geral de Reinserção e Serviços Prisionais from 2015 to 2020 and the Reports from February, May and December 2021 of the same entity were also used. The analysis of the data allowed evidencing several impacts arising from the pandemic in the execution of tutelary educational measures in the community.
