Marginalised young people, surveillance and public space : a research report /

by Wilson, Dean | Youth Affairs Council of Victoria | Rose, Jen | Colvin, Emma.

Publisher: Melbourne, Vic. Youth Affairs Council of Victoria 2010; School of Social and Political Inquiry, Monash University 2010Description: 56 p.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: September 2010 A Joint Project of the School of Political and Social Inquiry, Monash University and Youth Affairs Council of Victoria Bibliography : p. 50-52Summary: Young peoples right to access public space safely and without discrimination has been an ongoing focus of YACVics advocacy work over the years. Young people are still typically viewed with suspicion when hangingout in public spaces. Unfortunately, in spite of the introduction of the Victorian Charter of Human Rights and Responsibilities, policy and laws are still developed that seriously breach young peoples rights, particularly when it comes to the regulation of public space. Young people who are experiencing homelessness or other forms of social disadvantage or marginalisation experience breaches of several of their human rights. Their right to housing, as described by Article 25 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, is breached. They may well be denied their right to education as a consequence of the strain homelessness places on their lives. Their right to safety is regularly compromised by virtue of not having access to safe, private spaces. Further breaches of their right to safely access public spaces free from harassment and discrimination simply compounds their disadvantage and exacerbates their vulnerability. We have a responsibility to develop policy that does not serve to further marginalize young people who are already highly vulnerable.Availability: (1)
