|Keeping communities at the centre of Justice Reinvestment||46.97 MB|
Justice Reinvestment (JR) programmes take many forms, but most share a simple aim: to redirect spending on criminal justice into social justice initiatives that strengthen communities and reduce social harms, including offending behaviours. This report explores the potential of justice reinvestment as an alternative to the ongoing expansion of a punitive criminal justice system. It specifically looks at international examples of justice reinvestment projects, notably the Maranguka Justice Reinvestment project in Bourke, New South Wales, and suggests three key factors that successful projects share - they are community-led, place-based and data-driven.
