Title: Curfews: No More Hanging Around

Abstract: This article examines the recent extension of the scope of youth curfews. A critical analysis of the desirability of this widening of status laws is then offered, with an initial focus on libertarian issues, followed by a consideration of the predicted efficacy of youth curfews in the field of crime control. As the use of youth curfews has been prevalent in the United States since their revival in the early 1990s, a comparative analysis is possible. It is argued that the use of youth curfews is questionable both in terms of their implications for human rights and freedoms and as regards their utility.
