The article studies one of the socio-legal phenomena that are always concerned by the Vietnamese government, which is juvenile delinquency. Since the birth of criminal law, especially in the modern era, this particular subject has always been a special concern for countries. First of all, the article delves into the research community in Vietnam to understand the term and definition of crime. Since then, the author has laid out a theoretical basis for the phenomenon of juvenile delinquency in Vietnamese criminology. Like most other types of crime, juvenile crimes also have their origins in society, but they also have their characteristics, requiring appropriate policies and preventive measures. The mainly used methods are analysis and comparison of data to clarify the trend and structure of juvenile delinquency in Vietnam in recent years. Finally, to explain the movement of juvenile delinquency, the author has focused on analyzing sociological causes related to the social environment around the child. Research results show that juvenile crime in Vietnam is showing positive signs. That is primarily thanks to the State of Vietnam always focusing on developing policies, as well as updating the legal document system to regulate this issue well.
