Too much too young: raise the age of criminal responsibility

This Children’s Week, CLANT supports the national call to action initiated by Jesuit Social Services to raise the minimum age of criminal responsibility from 10 to 12, in accordance both with the standards prescribed by the United Nations Committee on the Rights of the Child, and current developments in child psychology and neuroscience. 

CLANT has co-signed this letter to all Australian Attorneys-General.  For further details, read this Report published in conjunction with the campaign, “Too Much Too Young”.
