Alcohol 'primary cause' of Aboriginal violence

Date posted: 9 May 2010

The Australian Institute of Criminology has released a report, titled Indigenous perpetrators of violence: prevalence and risk factors for offending, that identifies several risk factors among offenders that contribute to a greater likelihood of carrying out violent crime; namely alcohol and access to pornography. The report also highlights links between crimes and the lack of access to social services and education. Rather than simply focusing on the risk factors, the report recommends violent crime could be addressed by building protective factors.
