More than 400 Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people have died in custody since the Royal Commission into Aboriginal Deaths In custody in 1991. And while Indigenous people represent only 3 per cent of Australia's population, they make up more than 27 per cent of our prison population and 55 per cent of the youth detention population.

With this landscape in mind, this seminar will address the global context of incarceration. An expert panel of key Indigenous and non-Indigenous professionals will discuss the endemic of incarceration targeting Indigenous people in this country, and other low socio-economic groups around the world. It will address the research and community-driven projects that are working to combat the inequality.
