Intergenerational Crime: Can we break the cycle? (A free community forum)

JBradley 5 September 2014

ANU Prisoners Advocacy (ANUPA) presents its annual free public forum. This year we are tackling the issue of intergenerational crime. Have you ever wanted to know:

  • How is criminal behaviour perpetuated within family lines?
  • How are children shaped by the criminal decisions of their family?
  • Does being a victim of crime as a child mean you are more likely to go on to criminal offending?
  • Can offending of this nature be prevented?

We’ve lined up an exceptional interdisciplinary panel and the fantastic Genevieve Jacobs from 666 ABC as discussion moderator to help us answer the questions above, and more.

Panellists include:

  • Mr Alasdair Roy, ACT Children & Young People Commissioner
  • Assistant Commissioner Rudi Lammers APM, Chief Police Officer for the ACT
  • Dr Emmeline Taylor, Criminologist and Senior Lecturer at the Australian National University
  • Mr Rod Little, Chair of ACT Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Elected Body and Board of Directors, National Congress of Australia’s First Peoples
  • Dr Lynne Magor-Blatch, Psychologist and expert in the areas of alcohol and other drugs and mental health.

There will be lots of time for questions and discussion following the presentations.

Doors open at the Centre on China in the World at 5:15pm with tea, coffee and snacks provided.

When: Tuesday, 30th September
Time: 5.30pm – 7.30pm
Where: Australian Centre on China in the World, Building 188, Fellows Lane, The Australian National University
