Professor Megan Davis has been appointed to a Queensland Youth Justice Review.

Professor Davis is one of two independant experts to review the practices, operation and oversight of Queensland's Youth Detention Centres.

A Queensland Government media statement released on 7 September said, "Professor Megan Davis is the Chair and UN expert member on the United Nations Permanent Forum on Indigenous Peoples, a member of the NSW Sentencing Council and an Acting Commissioner of the NSW Land and Environment Court. The review will look into allegations levelled against the staff of youth detentions centres by former detainees and former employees in the media last month, and also specific allegations raised this month about the treatment of a 17-year-old in an adult prison three years ago."
