Research output: Contribution to journalArticleResearchpeer-review

Abstract

Research literature suggests that the Aboriginal population in Australia holds a range of attitudes toward imprisonment that differs from those expressed within mainstream white society. Additional factors including rates of imprisonment, causes, consequences of imprisonment, changes in treatment of Aborigines, and development of a more liberal view toward their imprisonment are examined. Reform measures for redressing the cultural disadvantages experienced by the Aborigines are discussed.
