Restorative justice

Sexual assault and harassment on university campuses: Changing the course

In February 2016 all 39 Australian university Vice-Chancellors launched a new initiative ‘Respect, Now, Always’ to address sexual assault and sexual harassment and build on work by individual universities in this area. As part of this initiative, the university sector through Universities Australia, asked the Australian Human Rights Commission to conduct a national prevalence survey of university students.

Restorative policing: ACT Chief Police Officer and expert criminologists in conversation

We are thrilled to be hosting this exciting panel discussion between the ACT Chief Police Officer, Justine Saunders, and expert criminologists Larry Sherman and Heather Strang from Cambridge University.

The panel will debate the positives and negatives of restorative justice from the perspective of the police, the victims and the offenders, and discuss the latest programs for reducing re-offending in Australia as well as in the Northern hemisphere. The panel will also be open to questions from the audience.
