Abstract: 

Six priorities were established for the Australian Institute of Criminology's research in 2018. These priorities cover a range of contemporary crime and justice concerns, including family and domestic violence, child exploitation material, Indigenous over-representation in the criminal justice system, youth crime, serious and organised crime, and illicit drugs. This book is structured broadly around these six themes, and each paper provides an insight into the AIC's work on that topic.
