The program has a wide range of sessions, roundtables and collaborative conversations on different conference streams and it includes youth justice. Topics covered under this stream include children in state care, working and communicating with young people, crime and justice, policing and reducing reoffending.
The conference also includes a roundtable discussion: Policing the crisis? African youth, crime, media and policing in Melbourne . It aims to ‘open for critical discussion a series of urgent and practical concerns that threaten community peace and cohesion’. The panel includes our co-convenor Diana Johns.
A highlight is the conference launch of the Koorie Youth Council’s Ngaga-dji project which voices the experiences of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children in Victoria’s youth justice system.
We hope to see some of you there.
We will also be live tweeting from the conference and you can follow the discussion on Twitter at #ANZSOC2018.
