Hearing directly from vulnerable young Australians /

by Mission Australia.

Publisher: Sydney, N.S.W.Mission Australia Snapshot 2010 2010Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: Bibliography : p. 7Summary: In 2009, around 48,000 young people across Australia participated in the eighth annual Mission Australia National survey of young Australians. The survey asked young people aged 11 to 24 years about what they value, their concerns, where they go for advice and support and who they admire. This publication focuses on the responses of three more vulnerable groups of young people - those who were homeless, in out-of-home care, or involved in the juvenile justice system. Young people who are homeless, in out-of-home care or in juvenile justice can be vulnerable in a number of areas which are fundamental to wellbeing, including meaningful relationships, educational achievement, secure housing, physical and mental wellbeing and financial security. This publication provides background on these young people, hears directly from them and makes some policy recommendations for enhancing their wellbeing.Availability: (1)

Indigenous perpetrators of violence : prevalence and risk factors for offending /

by Wundersitz, Joy | Australian Institute of Criminology.

Publisher: Canberra, A.C.T. Australian Institute of Criminology 2010Description: PDF.Other title: Australian Institute of Criminology reports. Research and.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: Bibliography : p. 100- 105Summary: In this report, the available data indicate that Indigenous people are 15 to 20 times more likely than non-Indigenous people to commit violent offences. The main risk factors linked to violent offending by Indigenous people include alcohol misuse, illicit drug use, sex, age, childhood experience of violence and abuse, exposure to pornography, education, income, employment, housing, physical and mental health, geographic location and access to services. However alcohol, based on existing evidence, stands out as a problem over and above structural factors such as socioeconomic disadvantage. The report concludes by drawing attention to the need to investigate the specifics of different forms of violent offending : the relationship between victims and offenders and the location and nature of different community settings. It is not, in itself, enough to continue to document the overrepresentation of Indigenous people in the criminal justice system. This can only be properly understood if more research involves the examination of what stops and inhibits offending. There are many Indigenous people who experience a constellation of risk factors who do not offend or refrain from offending and the report ends with a recommendation for further research into resilience and what are commonly called 'protective' factors, as part of a 'developmental prevention' approach.Availability: (1)

On the run : fugitive life in an American city /

by Goffman, Alice.

Publisher: Chicago, IL University of Chicago Press 2014Description: xiv, 277 p.Summary: Forty years in, the War on Drugs has done almost nothing to prevent drugs from being sold or used, but it has nonetheless created a little-known surveillance state in America's most disadvantaged neighborhoods. Arrest quotas and high-tech surveillance techniques criminalize entire blocks, and transform the very associations that should stabilize young lives - family, relationships, jobs - into liabilities, as the police use such relationships to track down suspects, demand information, and threaten consequences.Availability: No items available Checked out (1).

Reconnections and recollections : charting the history of Connections UnitingCare /

by Wales, Sue (ed.) | Connections UnitingCare.

Publisher: Mount Waverley, Vic. Connections UnitingCare 2010Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: May 2010 Bibliography : pp. 52-53Summary: In the 1970s, in the newer areas of population growth in the south-eastern suburbs, people of faith responded again to the needs of families with young children and teenagers by establishing relevant programs through Grassmere Youth Services and the Wheelers Hill Family Centre. Over the ensuing years, these programs expanded rapidly as more needs and ways of addressing these were identified. This booklet briefly explores the background and work of each of these agencies before they united to become a new organisation in May 2000. The reflections of some of the key figures in Connections' history and other staff directly involved also add a more personal element to the organisational changes. Innovation and initiative has driven this work over the years, and this approach is integral to Connections' current programs, some of whose achievements are outlined in this publication.Availability: (1)

The crime reducing effect of education /

by Machin, Stephen | Marie, Olivier | Vuji , Sun ica.

Publisher: London, U.K. Centre for Economic Performance 2010Description: 34 p.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: CEP Discussion Paper No 979 SCHOOL TO WORKSummary: In this paper, we present evidence on empirical connections between crime and education, using various data sources from Britain. A robust finding is that criminal activity is negatively associated with higher levels of education. However, it is essential to ensure that the direction of causation flows from education to crime. Therefore, we identify the effect of education on participation in criminal activity using changes in compulsory school leaving age laws over time to account for the endogeneity of education. In this causal approach, for property crimes, the negative crime-education relationship remains strong and significant. The implications of these findings are unambiguous and clear. They show that improving education can yield significant social benefits and can be a key policy tool in the drive to reduce crime.Availability: (1)
