Crime prevention programs for culturally and linguistically diverse communities in Australia /

by Bartels, Lorana | Criminology Research Council.

Publisher: Canberra, A.C.T. Australian Institute of Criminology 2011Description: PDF.Other title: Research in practice report ; no. 18.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: June 2011 Bibliography pp. 13-14Summary: It is generally recognised that people from culturally and linguistically diverse (CALD) communities may face a range of complex issues, including discrimination and prejudice, social isolation and disenfranchisement, and difficulties in assimilating within the broader Australian culture and/or in maintaining a sense of identification with the culture of origin. In addition, refugees or people who have migrated to Australia as a result of adversity may be suffering from undiagnosed or untreated trauma. All of these factors may impact on involvement in and engagement with the criminal justice system. In this paper, the key criminal justice issues in relation to CALD communities are reviewed and a summary of relevant protective and risk factors provided. Some CALD-specific crime prevention programs, which serve to promote resiliency and protective factors and/or inhibit risk factors, are then presented. In order to ensure relevance and currency, the paper is primarily limited to Australian research from 2006 onwards.Availability: (1)

By definition, as a decentralised initiative, community justice centres operate at a neighbourhood level. Local people become involved in the justice process and with onsite client services available, the focus is very much on quality of life in the community. The Neighbourhood Justice Centre (NJC) in Yarra was established in January 2007. Its aim is to provide new and innovative ways of dealing with crime and other forms of social disorder, disadvantage and conflict in the local area.Availability: (1)

The crime reducing effect of education /

by Machin, Stephen | Marie, Olivier | Vuji , Sun ica.

Publisher: London, U.K. Centre for Economic Performance 2010Description: 34 p.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: CEP Discussion Paper No 979 SCHOOL TO WORKSummary: In this paper, we present evidence on empirical connections between crime and education, using various data sources from Britain. A robust finding is that criminal activity is negatively associated with higher levels of education. However, it is essential to ensure that the direction of causation flows from education to crime. Therefore, we identify the effect of education on participation in criminal activity using changes in compulsory school leaving age laws over time to account for the endogeneity of education. In this causal approach, for property crimes, the negative crime-education relationship remains strong and significant. The implications of these findings are unambiguous and clear. They show that improving education can yield significant social benefits and can be a key policy tool in the drive to reduce crime.Availability: (1)
