It has become increasingly clear that the emancipatory capacity of social work has been eroded.   Several scholars link this to the influence of neo-liberal and ‘Third Way’ thinking.  However, it has recently been argued that social work was not only a victim of these new influences, but that it is also very adaptable to the influence of such new ideas and not very critical about its own role in these change.  Developing further this criticism, by focusing on the debate surrounding youth delinquency. According to youth delinquency has become someone else’s problem.

By analysing the role of social work within the youth justice system, the article shows that (i) social work has not only been the victim of recent changes, but that it has also withdrawn from the debate on youth justice, and (ii) that this process is related to how social work is defined as a methodical answer to the problem of youth delinquency.
