  • Exploring the factors leading to high recidivism rates among Indigenous Australians.
  • Discussing what needs to change, including structural design, cultural change, and supportive rehabilitation services. 
  • Examples of evidence based initiatives that engage communities, the needs of the inmate and provide opportunity for indigenous Australians to prosper post-release.
