Indigenous Justice Clearinghouse Forum

Justice Reinvestment

12 October 2021 10:00am-2:00pm AEDT

Focused on Australia and New Zealand, the Indigenous Justice Clearinghouse is a collaborative partnership whose goal is to reduce Indigenous over-representation in the criminal justice system and improve safety in Indigenous communities by providing policy makers and those working in the Indigenous justice field with quality, accessible information about Indigenous justice issues and ‘what works’.

The online half day forum is a continuation of past events where public policy makers, program designers, and speakers shared learning on relevant topics including bail and remand (2017), adolescent family violence (2018) and, more recently, reducing over-representation and Closing the Gap Justice Targets (June 2021).

The topic for the forum will be "Justice Reinvestment". It will aim to share information on the development of justice reinvestment and its application within the Australian context. Participants will share their experience in what is working in their communities with the aim of demonstrating how government partnership with community, academics and the private sector can help reduce crime, improve safety and strengthen Indigenous communities.

The Indigenous Justice Clearinghouse looks forward to welcoming you to the Forum.
