There are myriad ways in which race shapes the creation and implementation of law and public policy, and, in turn, myriad ways in which these laws and policies affect the lives of racial and ethnic minority children. This entry reviews the intersections of race, psychology, public policy, and law to understand how minority children are negatively affected and how these negative effects can be addressed within a number of domains including child victimisation (child sex trafficking, corporal punishment, child sexual abuse), dependency court decisions and adoption, the juvenile and criminal justice systems, and immigration law and policy.
