The Victorian Aboriginal Justice Agreement is a long-term partnership between the Aboriginal community and the Victorian government. Each phase of the AJA was built on its predecessors to further improve the results of equity for Aboriginal people. In the development of Burra Lotjpa Dunguludja, the long-term aspiration of the Aboriginal Justice Caucus for self-determination within the justice system, the Aboriginal community could finally set the agenda for creating a culturally responsive justice system for Aboriginal people. The Victorian government recognizes that “The Aboriginal people of Victoria are the people who know best what works when it comes to achieving better results for their own communities.” Torres Strait Aborigines and Islanders, who live in Victoria and work in the justice sector, have different cultures. The term “Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander” is used when referring to The Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders. Referring to the Aborigines and Torres Strait Islanders of Victoria, the term “aboriginal” is used. Other terms such as “Koori,” “Koorie” and “Indigenous” are retained in the names of programs, initiatives, publishing titles and published data. The Aboriginal agreement on Victorian justice is described and explained. The goal is to combat the over-representation of Aboriginal people at all levels of the criminal justice system, improve Aboriginal access to justice services, and promote greater awareness within the Aboriginal community of civil, legal and political rights. The goal is to achieve this through the cooperation of the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders Commission, the Aboriginal Justice Advisory Committee, the Department of Justice and the Department of Human Services. The word family has many different meanings. The use of the words “family” and “family” encompasses and recognizes the diversity of relationships and structures that can constitute a family unit, including family or family relationships and extended kinship structures.
