CTPI: Exploring Youth Justice: Progress and Possibilities

CTPI: Exploring Youth Justice: Progress and Possibilities

Video 484.82MB
Audio 87.12MB

Tuesday, 5 November 2013

Chaired by Professor Murray Rae, Head of the Department of Theology and Religion, this is a panel discussion with Judge Andrew Becroft, Principal Youth Court Judge, Professor Mark Henaghan, Dean of the Faculty of Law, Professor Chris Marshall, Victoria University, Wellington and Dr Shayne Walker, Department of Sociology, Gender and Social Work. One often hears laments about the loss of moral standards and the high rates of criminal offending among youth. In fact, however, rates of youth offending in New Zealand have been declining in recent years. But there is work yet to be done. The panel will consider the progress made thus far, the things that could be done to improve things further, and also the larger question of the goals toward which our justice system should be directed: what does justice consist of and what does it mean for justice to be done? 5 November 2013

Tuesday, 29 October 2013

The 2013 William Evans Fellow Professor Oliver Richmond discusses the paradox of power and peace. In debates about peace, most discussions of power implicitly revolve around four types. Each of these types of power may be exercised from different sites of legitimate authority: the international, the state, and the local, and their legitimacy is constructed via specific understandings of time and space. Each type of power and its related site of authority have implications for making peace. 29 October 2013
