SANTIAGO ANTONIO, Zoila. Children and Juvenile Offenders in Mexico City, 1920-1937. Secuencia [online]. 2014, n.88, pp.191-215. ISSN 2395-8464.

The aim of this paper is to contribute to the study of childhood in Mexico City between 1920 and 1937. Using the Court Records for Juvenile Offenders, the authors seek to analyze the children and young people of the city by exploring the social and economic situation, in this case of juvenile offenders. The first part of the article analyzes some of the institutions that emerged during the early decades of the 20th century that were designed to protect helpless children. At the same time, the author describes how these groups appropriated these institutions, using them as another survival strategy. The aim is to reconstruct the social context in which hundreds of poor children and young people developed in Mexico City, particularly their family situation and life on the street.
