Access to Justice in Australia-Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander People's Experience

Solonec, Tammy; Kiss, Katie

This article examines the challenges experienced by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples in accessing justice more broadly in Australia, and it proposes a way forward. It also considers two options that address the overrepresentation of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples within the criminal justice system and the high incarceration rates: justice reinvestment and the inclusion of national justice targets in the ‘Closing the Gap’ policy framework.
