Abstract

Initiatives targeting Indigenous overrepresentation in Australia’s criminal justice systems have been largely ineffectual. Justice reinvestment has been touted as a potential panacea. This article provides a framework for developing justice reinvestment plans with communities, based on a qualitative research project focusing on levels of crime and recidivism in two remote Indigenous communities. The framework is a hybrid design, informed by a crime analysis, action research, narrative data analysis and a culturally informed Indigenous research paradigm. It is argued that justice reinvestment can be successfully implemented which empowers Indigenous peoples to identify the causes of crime based on place-based solutions.
