Abstract

Indigenous people continue to be over-represented in the criminal justice system across Australia. This problem is exacerbated in remote Aboriginal communities. This two year research project consisted of in depth interviews with ex-prisoners, families and community agencies to identify the factors that lead to the high rates of recidivism in both communities. The data led to a number of key initiatives foe reducing recidivism as suggested by the members of both communities. The identified solutions included the establishment of on country bush camps, transition officers and a framework for working with ex-prisoners upon their release.
