(Palgrave Studies in Race, Ethnicity, Indigeneity and Criminal Justice) 1st ed. 2019 Edition 

by Elena Marchetti (Author)

This book examines the use and impact of Australian indigenous sentencing courts in response to indigenous partner violence.  In operation in Australia since 1999, these courts were first established by a magistrate in South Australia who sought to improve court communication and understanding, and trust in the criminal justice system for indigenous people. Indigenous Courts, Culture and Partner Violence is the first book to consider how the transformation of a sentencing process into one that better reflects indigenous cultural values can improve outcomes for both victims and offenders of indigenous partner violence.  It asks which aspects of the sentencing process are most important in influencing a change in attitude and behaviour of indigenous offenders who repeatedly engage in abusive behaviour towards their partner, and what types of justice process better meets the relationship, rehabilitative and safety needs of indigenous partner violence offenders and their victims?

Marchetti examines the adaptation of a formal sentencing process to make it more culturally meaningful when responding to indigenous partner violence, and gauges victim and offender views about how the court process has affected their lives and relationships, and elicits their views of violence within their communities. This innovative work will be of great interest to academics, researchers, policy makers, police, lawyers, family violence service providers and students.
