Call for authors on three topics

It’s that time again – the Clearinghouse is once again calling for authors for its Indigenous justice publication program.
The Indigenous Justice Clearinghouse (IJC) develops and publishes briefs which provide an overview and analysis of key Indigenous justice issues in Australia and New Zealand. In April 2016, the IJC is calling for expressions of interest from experienced researchers who can complete a brief in one of the following areas:

  • Mental health and cognitive disability and the criminal justice system
  • Justice Reinvestment
  • The intergenerational effects of incarceration.

Authors are paid $5,000 for completion of an IJC publication.

IJC publications are 3,000-5,000 words long, and are written in an accessible format for policy makers and those working in the Indigenous justice field. IJC briefs include examples of programs and projects that are working to reduce Indigenous incarceration and keep communities safe.

Interested authors are encouraged to download the Terms of Reference and submit an Expression of Interest by 5pm Friday 13 May 2016. Indigenous researchers are warmly invited to apply.

For more information email ijc@agd.nsw.gov.au or call 02 8346 1743. Copies of previous IJC publications can be downloaded from the Clearinghouse Publications page.
