Children's colonies of the USSR Ministry of Internal Affairs in the Process of Transformation of the Practices of Fight Against Juvenile Delinquency (1953-1960)
Children crimes and homelessness were spread throughout the USSR and were common problems of the society despite the state’s attempts to fight against them. This study examines the years of Khrushchev’s thaw (ottepel’) during which the soviet penalty systems and the area of the criminal law had suffered transformations that, consequently, reflected on the children colony systems. This work seeks to explore the children’s colonies and their features of functioning to argue that during the period from 1953 to 1960 there were significant changes of the practice of fight against juvenile delinquency. In sum, the children’s colonies can be shown to change the methods of their penalties from severe to more humanistic ones but the reforms were not completely successful.
