The CIJ undertakes research and makes submissions on the themes of restorative justice, family violence, women's decarceration and systemic reform. We work in partnership with the justice sector, government and justice system users, as well as independently.
The CIJ recently made a joint submission with the Law and Advocacy Centre for Women to the Victorian Parliament Legal and Social Issues Committee’s Inquiry into Homelessness in Victoria.
