Approaches to the design and provision of prison accommodation and facilities for Australian indigenous prisoners after the royal commission into aboriginal deaths in custody

Australian Indigenous Law Review
Volume 17 Issue 1 (2013)

Abstract: The Royal Commission into Aboriginal Deaths in Custody ('RCIADIC') investigated the deaths of 99 Aboriginal people in police and prison custody. Each of the individual reports poignantly outlines someone's life and the circumstances of their death in prison or police custody. Many of the custodial environments where the people were detained were unpleasant, inappropriate, unsafe or even inhumane.
