All jurisdictions of Australia except the Northern Territory have basically banned the publication of any information naming any child involved in criminal proceedings. Rather than prohibiting publication, the NT allows publication of proceedings involving the Youth Court but with a power for the Court to order that the name not be published if there are grounds for so doing. Political attitudes to naming and shaming vary at different times in different states. The authors will be conducting research into the impact on offenders to inform the debate.
