Prison numbers are ballooning, and recidivism is rampant, at great cost to community and government. We need to find alternatives to locking people up. The Paul Ramsay Foundation hosted this urgent discussion about a system in crisis.

Keynote speaker and Northern Territory Australian of the Year, Leanne Liddle, shared her insights as the driving force behind the Territory’s ground-breaking Aboriginal Justice Agreement. She was joined by a panel of experts who discussed what about the current system needs to change, how to support alternatives to custody and who we need on board.
