Abstract

The first Neighbourhood Justice Centre has recently been set up in Australia and forms part of a worldwide neighbourhood justice movement which focuses upon local justice solutions. These models are based around community courts operating as part of broader justice initiatives which reposition the relationship between the community and the justice system. This article explores the drivers of neighbourhood court solutions and systemic issues which may impact upon the success of these community court models.
