Description

Unpacking The Youth Justice System - Detention & Rehabilitation: What's The Right Balance?

#WhitelionQandA

Youth justice issues always make headlines with supposed ‘African gangs crisis’, riots in youth detention centres and allegations of mistreatment of detainees across the country. Yet rarely does the public get the chance to question the system itself.

Our youth justice system currently offers both detention and rehabilitation elements – the question is whether the balance is right.

Modelled on ABC TV’s Q&A program, the inaugural Whitelion’s youth justice Q&A is set to dive deep, raise the level of understanding and discussion in the community, and possibly even find better solutions.

Moderated by legendary crime writer John Silvester, the event includes a keynote speech by Professor James Ogloff and esteemed panellists from government, academia and community organisations across Victoria.

Join us for what promises to be a compelling, likely entertaining and definitely thought-provoking evening.
