Description:

The paper looks at an article by Richard MacClure et al (2003) entitled, "Young Offender Diversion in Canada: Tensions and Contradictions of Social Policy Appropriation." As time permits, the writer argues that, while well-intentioned, MacClure and his colleagues have produced a deeply-flawed work inasmuch as the methodology is far too narrow for the question being pursued, the focus appears to be somewhat unclear (chiefly owing to the title) and the interview itself invites concerns about bias and about how truthful the respondents really were in answering the queries of the scholars. The writer reaches the conclusion that the article suffers because its methodology is simply far too superficial and limited.
