Victorian Aboriginal Justice Agreement

Each phase of the Aboriginal Justice Agreement (AJA) builds on the one before it. AJA1 laid the foundation for improved Koori justice outcomes in Victoria by developing robust partnerships and infrastructure, and putting in place a range of new Koori justice initiatives.

AJA2 focused on preventing the progression of young Koories into the system, reducing reoffending, and changing the justice system to be more responsive and inclusive in its approach to Koories. It had a strongly place-based approach, focusing on strengthening community justice responses to address issues locally.

In 2013, the Victorian Government and the Koori community signed the AJA3, which continues the work to improve Koori justice outcomes and reduce over-representation in the criminal justice system and is the third phase of a long-term change strategy to be rolled out in stages over a generation until the gap is closed.
