Reform has been prevalent in many juvenile justice centres in Australia during recent years. This conference provides an overview of juvenile detention centres and the juvenile detention population in Australia. The detention centres and the programs offered by different jurisdictions in Australia and New Zealand are described, and the special needs of young women and Aboriginal young people are also examined.
