Abstract

Luke Butcher investigated how youth justice programs could better support Aboriginal young people from rural communities. The impact of colonisation and social disadvantage were major factors contributing to Aboriginal young people’s contact with NSW Youth Justice. The findings informed a new theory to guide the design of youth justice programs.
