|Abstract: ||The following paper considers the overrepresentation of Indigenous offenders within the Australian correctional system; particularly the factors linked to a cycle of contact (the ‘revolving door’). It explores the process of colonisation and the steps towards reconciliation. Demographic details and practices are compared with those occurring in New Zealand and Canada, and the criminogenic, non-criminogenic and cultural issues are noted. Two noteworthy programs occurring in New South Wales and Victoria are discussed before a number of strategic recommendations are made to prevent the ‘revolving door’.|
