Abstract

After centuries of colonisation, Indigenous peoples in the settler colonial states, including Australia, New Zealand, Canada and the USA, experience profound socio-economic disadvantage and political marginalisation. Nowhere is the impact of colonialism more obvious than with Indigenous peoples’ encounters with criminal justice which are typically characterised by high rates of victimisation, arrest, conviction and imprisonment. This chapter explores an Indigenous approach to criminological inquiry which has emerged within settler colonial contexts, partly in response to the perceived weaknesses and bias of the policy sector and the mainstream criminological approaches.

Keywords: indigenous criminology, criminological theories
