[Extract] After centuries of colonization, indigenous peoples in the settler-colonial states - including Australia, New Zealand, Canada and the USA - still experience profound socio-economic disadvantage and political marginalization. Nowhere is the impact of colonialism more obvious than with Indigenous peoples' encounters with criminal justice, which are typically characterized by high rates of victimization, arrest, conviction and imprisonment. While the significant over-representation of Indigenous peoples in settler-colonial systems of crime control is acknowledged by both policymakers and mainstream criminologists and has resulted in significant research and policy recognition, overall the situation has worsened in recent decades.
