3rd Australasian Youth Justice Conference


The Australasian Juvenile Justice Administrators (AJJA) in collaboration with Juvenile Justice New South Wales (JJ NSW) is partnering with the Australian Institute of Criminology (AIC) to deliver the 3rd Australasian Youth Justice Conference in 2019. The conference will be held at the Sydney International Convention Centre, in the heart of this wonderful harbourside city.

Over three days the conference will bring together juvenile justice administrators, practitioners and policymakers from government and community organisations, together with academics, students and others with a keen interest in effective, innovative youth justice outcomes.

Running this year for the third time, the Conference is a great opportunity to learn about – and directly contribute to shaping – new ideas and evidence-based responses in Australia, New Zealand and internationally.

The conference will feature dynamic keynote presentations from a diverse group of international and domestic keynote speakers, each setting the scene for the concurrent papers, concurrent sessions and poster presentations that will complete the program.

The theme for AYJC 2019 is Contemporary Challenges, Innovative Solutions, embracing and reflecting the need for forward-thinking approaches to issues highlighted by recent inquiries. Sub-themes throughout the conference will explore safety, security and rehabilitation; Countering Violent Extremism; emerging technologies; mental health; Foetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder; education; and overrepresentation across different groups.

Whether you are coming to present, to hear from others – or both – we look forward to welcoming you to AYJC 2019!
