Australasian Youth Justice Administrators (AYJA) in collaboration with Oranga Tamariki – Ministry for Children, partnered with the University of Auckland

The theme for AYJC 2021 Online is Delivering Youth Justice for the Community, by the Community, with two major streams Weaving the Voices of Lived Experience with Best Evidence and Connecting Culture – Law to Lore. People who have lived in communities most affected by crime, particularly indigenous communities with different traditions and culture, are often overlooked when youth crime solutions are sought. The Conference will provide a platform to hear from those voices.

The Australasian Youth Justice Administrators (AYJA) in collaboration with Oranga Tamariki – Ministry for Children (OT) is partnering with the University of Auckland (UOA) to deliver the 4th Australasian Youth Justice Conference in 2021.

Over three days the Conference will bring together youth 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 for the fourth 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.

Sponsored places:  If you are part of a community organisation supported by Oranga Tamariki to provide youth justice services to young people, families or victims of youth crime in your local community, please email the Youth Justice team as you may be eligible for a sponsored place.
