Discipline, torture…what’s the difference?

After more appalling revelations about extreme treatment of young  people in detention, we look at a different dimension of  incarceration in Australia; the limits of discipline of people in places of detention. We talk to Associate Professor Bronwyn Naylor about the meaning of the Convention against Torture, and how it might be implemented in Australia. We also discuss the treatment of children and young people in ‘closed environments’ such as detention centres.
