2024 First Nations National Juvenile Justice Conference

2024 First Nations JJ Conference Cairns QLD

The 2024 First Nations National Juvenile Justice Conference is scheduled to be held on October 2-4, 2024 at Shangri-La Hotel in Cairns QLD Australia. This crucial conference aims to address the overrepresentation of Indigenous youth in the criminal justice system. Indigenous children are now 26 times more likely to be in detention than non-Indigenous youth. Due to this, it is extremely crucial that justice targets need to be adopted as part of the Closing the Gap strategy - a move resisted by state and federal governments, yet one that would focus attention on policy outcomes aimed at reducing Indigenous youth incarceration. The need for systemic change is clear, but often it is only when there are consequences to individuals that behavioural and cultural change follows.
