Abstract
This paper explores the different approaches to juvenile justice across Australian jurisdictions, and examines whether or not Australia is compliant with international standards. Compliance is assessed according to three principles: the use of imprisonment and detention as a last resort, the availability and use of diversion options, and the prohibition against racial discrimination. The paper includes an outline of potential improvements to diversionary strategies, and the need for legislation to provide clarity and consistency.
