dc.description.abstract There has been serious concerns about the pace at which juvenile criminality is increasing globally(National Academies Press, 2001).Young people are increasingly becoming susceptible to a wide variety of misdemeanors; from substance abuse and addiction to murder (ibid). Studies have empirically described many triggers as the root cause of juvenile delinquency (Archer, 2000).Some criminologists have attributed these types of misdemeanors to the environments to which these adolescents are/have been subjected to (Wikstrom, 2004). On this basis, this research aims to assess the liability, if any, of bystanders/observers and enablers/facilitators of juvenile delinquency. The study employed a qualitative approach in evaluating the role of bystanders and enablers in juvenile delinquency. The outcome revealed that the majority of bystanders and enablers are equally as guilty as the delinquent youth. Three theories were used to rationalize these findings; the anomie-strain theory, situational action theory and self control theory ( Chainey & Ratcliffe, 2005). As a result, the study recommends adequate parental guidance, in-person supervision, parental awareness, governmental inclusion, the provision of social infrastructures as well as equal opportunities, among others. en_US
