MINORS AND DEVIANCE IN THE CONTEXT OF THE COVID-19 PANDEMIC FROM AN INSTITUTIONAL PERSPECTIVE
-The present research aims to analyze the phenomenon of deviance among minors from the perspective of specialists who work with them. The context of the Covid-19 pandemic represented a good opportunity to analyze the dynamics of the phenomenon of juvenile deviance, as many aspects of daily life have acquired other nuances through isolation, distancing, etc. Following the research, it was found that there are multiple causes of the propagation of this phenomenon, namely the deficient family environment due to the lack of parental supervision, the influence of social media, the influence of the entourage, etc.Through this research, some characteristics of minors who commit acts of deviance were proposed, as well as a profile of those who are at risk of becoming deviant. The results of the research show that an inter-institutional collaboration between the town hall, school, church and police could facilitate the reduction of deviance among minors-
