Call for Authors: 2020-21 Publication Round

The Indigenous Justice Clearinghouse (IJC) invites expressions of interest from experienced researchers or policymakers for the preparation of upcoming publications on:

• Prevention and early intervention programs for Indigenous women in Australia and New Zealand;
• Domestic violence responses for Indigenous women in Australia and New Zealand;
• Indigenous adolescent use of violence in family contexts in Australia and New Zealand; and
• Prevention and early intervention programs for Indigenous young people in Australia and New Zealand.


IJC publications are 3,000-4,000 words long and provide an overview and analysis of critical Indigenous justice issues in Australia and New Zealand. IJC publications are written in an accessible format for policymakers and those working in the Indigenous justice field. IJC publications include examples of programs that represent good- or promising-practice at addressing specific justice issues. Each publication attracts a payment of $5,000 (excl. GST).

The IJC is a joint project of the Council of Attorneys-General and the Australian Institute of Criminology. The IJC is hosted by the NSW Department of Communities and Justice in Sydney. The IJC aims to share knowledge about what works to address Indigenous criminal justice issues. The IJC widely distributes its publications to public servants and those working in the Indigenous justice field.

Interested authors should email ijc@justice.nsw.gov.au for the project’s terms of reference. Expressions of interest should demonstrate your expertise in the topic area and include an overview of your proposed research. An example of a successful expression of interest can be provided on request to guide your application.

The closing date for expressions of interest is Sunday, 11 October 2020.

Indigenous researchers and policymakers are warmly invited to apply.
