30 years on: Royal Commission into Aboriginal Deaths in Custody recommendations remain unimplemented


This paper outlines concerns with the 2018 Deloitte Access Economics review of the implementation of the 339 recommendations of the Royal Commission into Aboriginal Deaths in Custody (RCIADIC).  Further to statements by Jordan et al. in December 2018, on the review and how it may have misrepresented the extent to which the RCIADIC recommendations had been implemented, this paper draws on coronial inquest reports, and new evidence of the failure of governments to implement key RCIADIC recommendations and the fatal consequences for First Nations lives.
