Summary:
Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders make up 2% of Australians, yet constitute over a quarter of the prison population. This book examines the latest research on indigenous imprisonment rates, and reviews progress on addressing Aboriginal deaths in custody and youth detention reform. How can governments reduce over-incarceration and work with communities to implement interventions? What will it take to unlock the problems of indigenous inequality in the criminal justice system?.
