This report summarises the findings of the Australian Capital Territory (ACT) component of the Australian Research Council funded Discovery Project: Challenges possibilities and future directions: a National Assessment of Australia’s Children’s Courts. This project was funded by an Australian Research Council Discovery Grant. The ACT study was one of nine parallel studies – one covering each state and territory and the ninth, based on the eight others, focusing on Australia as a whole. Each study had its own set of Chief Investigators and in the ACT these were Professor Peter Camilleri and Professor Morag McArthur. A book, published by Springer, is under preparation which will outline the findings of each jurisdiction and of the national research project.
