This report by the Australian Human Rights Commission provides insight of where equality does not exist for Australian people with disabilities in the criminal justice system. This is particularly relevant for Indigenous people who have disabilities and are in contact with the justice system, seeking equality. The report findings resulted from a wide-ranging consultation process to identify how people with disabilities, deal with the barriers they experience to equality before the law. The report also highlights services and programs that improve equality before the law for people with disabilities, and sets some directions by which change may occur.
