Chris Cunneen and Amanda Jayne Porter (University of New South Wales (UNSW) - Faculty of Law and Jumbunna Indigenous House of Learning) have posted Indigenous Peoples and Criminal Justice in Australia (Deckert, A. and Sarre, R. (eds) The Palgrave Handbook of Australian and New Zealand Criminology, Crime and Justice, Palgrave Macmillan, Basingstoke, ISBN 9783319557465, pp 667-682) on SSRN. Here is the abstract:
This chapter contextualises crime and criminal justice in Australian colonial history. It maps the development of Aboriginal criminology in Australia and covers key themes that have disproportionately affected Indigenous peoples such as incarceration and deaths in custody. Finally, the authors reflect on research into contemporary Indigenous experiences, like Aboriginal English in the courtroom and state interventions.
