The role of cultural factors in the sentencing of Indigenous sex offenders in the Northern Territory project is run by the University of New South Wales. The project is a study of the impact of extra-legal factors about sexuality and Indigenous culture on the sentencing of Indigenous sex offenders in the Northern Territory (NT).
It will provide an empirical basis for future policy, legal practice and law reform relating to sentencing in sexual assault cases in the NT, with broader application to other Australian jurisdictions.
