Paedophilia : policy and prevention



This collection consists of papers given at the Australian Institute of Criminology's Sydney conference on the topic of paedophilia in April 1997. The speakers explore various interpretations of paedophilia and aim to generate ideas that will contribute to the practical formulation of policy and prevention in this area. The papers summarise the issues relating to detection and reporting; investigation, prosecution and defence; public education; treating of offenders; and implications for civil liberties.
