Indigenous perpetrators of violence: prevalence and risk factors for offending

Data indicates that Indigenous people are 15 to 20 times more likely than non-Indigenous people to commit violent offences. This report by Joy Wundersitz of the Australian Institute of Criminology presents results of research into victimisation of, and offending by, Indigenous people. Designed to inform and complement the work of the National Indigenous Violence and Child Abuse Intelligence Task Force, this report draws attention to the need to investigate the characteristics of forms of violent offending, relationships between victims and offenders and the location and nature of different community settings.
