Abstract

The crisis in juvenile justice which has led to the reduced availability of services to assist troubled young people in Australia was discussed at the conference where the papers in this book were presented. Specific issues examined include: the effectiveness of particular juvenile justice programs; juvenile recidivism; the rate of criminalisation and incarceration of Aboriginal young people; the particular issues facing young women; and restorative justice.
