Event details

This event is intended to address the raced and classed representations of young people circulating in recent media coverage of incidents of violence, associated political and policy discourses. These representations arguably position young people simplistically as perpetrators and victims of violence, and centre criminal justice and public health responses. In this discourse of youth violence, there is an elision of dimensions of structural inequality, systematic policy discrimination against young people, and the experience of symbolic violence.
