Indigenous Justice Clearinghouse Seeking Authors

The Indigenous Justice Clearinghouse (IJC) is inviting expressions of interest from experienced researchers for the preparation of two upcoming publications:

  • Property crime and Indigenous people and
  • The incidence and impacts of lateral violence in Indigenous communities.

IJC publications are 3,000-5,000 words long, and provide an overview and analysis of key Indigenous justice issues in Australia and New Zealand. IJC publications are written in an accessible format for policy makers and those working in the Indigenous justice field, and include examples of programs that are working to reduce Indigenous incarceration and keep communities safe. Each publication attracts a payment of $5,000.

The IJC is a joint project of the Law, Crime and Community Safety Council and the Australian Institute of Criminology. The IJC is hosted by the NSW Department of Justice in Sydney. The goal of the Clearinghouse is to share knowledge about what works to address Indigenous criminal justice issues. IJC publications are widely distributed to public servants and those working in the Indigenous justice field.

For a full information package email Indigenous researchers are warmly invited. The closing date for expressions of interest is Friday 9 October 2015.
