Event Details



The Problem with Vulnerable People and Bail: limits to diversionary options for young people


Presented by


Isabelle Bartkowiak-Théron


Tasmanian Institute of Law Enforcement Studies


What will the session cover?

Academics, policy makers, police and justice professionals agree that efforts should be made to reduce the over-representation of vulnerable people, such as Indigenous Australians, young people and people living with a mental illness, in the criminal justice system. Outside localised initiatives such as therapeutic jurisprudence, bail remains the most current practice that supposedly diverts vulnerable people from incarceration and reoffending. However, scientific knowledge about the management of vulnerable offenders on bail is sketchy. This session will highlight the work that remains to be done to properly ‘picture’ good bail practices in Australia, and the data recently collected in researching the issue.
