Abstract

It is well documented in the literature that Indigenous Australians are over-represented in prison and are more likely than non- Indigenous prisoners to return to prison. In order to address this over-representation, it is important to understand the factors which may contribute to Indigenous people committing crimes. This article explores perspectives on the factors that contribute to crime among Indigenous people in a remote community in Australia.
