The Use of Diversion in Juvenile Justice Settings in Australia: with particular focus on the state of Victoria

This research is the result of law internship program hosted by Institute for Criminal Justice Reform (ICJR) and facilitated by Australian Consortium for ‘In-Country’ Indonesian Studies (ACICIS). This partnership aimed to increase students’ awareness of legal issues that are being discussed in the host country, Indonesia, through a comparative approach with the best practice in Australia.

Focusing on Diversion in the Juvenile Justice System, Indonesian law No. 11 of 2012 on Juvenile Criminal Justice System came into effect in 2014. However, there are several duties that the State are yet to fulfil, for instance the Government Regulations on the Guidelines for the Implementation, Procedures and Coordination of Diversion Programs.

This research shows the best practice of the implementation of diversion programs in Juvenile Justice System in Australia, more specific in the State of Victoria, as Victoria is believed to have the best diversion programs. Drawing on the practice undertaken in Australia, this research can be used as a reference point on Diversion programs by Indonesia, who is working to implement better diversion programs.
