Children's Rights
Innovations in youth justice: child rights in action webinar

As Australia continues to grapple with ongoing crises in its youth justice systems, this webinar explores the potential lessons our country could learn from international experiences of reform.

Over the course of five years, the Oberstown Children Detention Campus in Ireland adopted a Children’s Rights Policy Framework and implemented evidence-based and human-rights-based changes to its structure and operations.

Oberstown’s Director Damien Hernon joined webinar host Anne Hollonds, Australia’s National Children’s Commissioner, to share the journey of transformational change at Oberstown; from inception to where it currently stands today.
