Our youth, our way

Systemic inquiry into the over-representation of Aboriginal children and young people in Victoria's youth justice system

On 15 May 2019, the Commission established the Our youth, our way systemic inquiry into the over-representation of Aboriginal children and young people in Victoria's youth justice system.

The inquiry builds on the work from the Koori Youth Justice Taskforce, which is a partnership between the Commission and the Department of Justice and Community Safety.

At the end of the inquiry, the Commission will release a report that highlights the experiences and stories of Aboriginal young people involved in youth justice and make recommendations for reform to address over-representation. The report will be tabled in the Parliament of Victoria in March 2020.
