NATIONAL INDIGENOUS LAW AND JUSTICE FRAMEWORK 2009 – 2015

The Framework is a national approach to addressing the serious and complex issues that mark the interaction between Indigenous people and the justice systems in Australia. The strategies and actions in the Framework are intended to be flexible rather than prescriptive to enable implementation that is responsive to local needs and consistent with jurisdictional priorities and resources capacity.

The Framework is intended to support the COAG agenda to Close the Gap in Indigenous Communities.
