The Australian Institute of Criminology and Australasian Juvenile Justice Administrators are pleased to announce their first international youth justice conference with the theme of Changing trajectories of offending and reoffending.

The Conference will present contemporary research, policy and program evidence on what can prevent young people from offending, what is good practice for managing young people within the criminal justice system, and what helps young offenders desist from crime and attain a more constructive and fulfilling life path—in other words, how can young offenders be rehabilitated and reintegrated?

Key themes to be explored will include:
  • family and community-based interventions;
  • policing young people;
  • young offenders and the courts;
  • intervening within a corrections context;
  • therapeutic jurisprudence and restorative justice; and
  • policies and programs to assist Indigenous young people and their families.
