In 2013 the Australian Juvenile Justice Administrators (AJJA) and the Australian Institute of Criminology (AIC) held the first Australasian Youth Justice Conference.
The first Australasian Youth Justice Conference featured distinguished speakers from a range of backgrounds - judicial, academic and therapeutic - to provide insight into youth justice issues and ways forward.
The issues discussed included;
- current challenges facing police
- courts and supervision in the youth justice area
- working with offenders both inside and outside supervised settings
- intervening through families and communities
- working with Indigenous young offenders from Australian, New Zealand and Canadian perspectives.
