Is Alternative Dispute Resolution a second-rate system of backyard justice?

We are honoured to have Ms Leanne Liddle, Director of the Aboriginal Justice Unit NT, address this fundamental question in her ADR Address of the Supreme Court of the Northern Territory 2020.

Abstract

Here in the Northern Territory we are privileged to have so many different Aboriginal people with different cultures within our borders. But sadly, as Aboriginal people, we have the highest imprisonment rates and numbers of court presentations in the nation. Tackling the high levels of disparity between Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal people, particularly in the justice system, remains an ongoing challenge.

Alternative Dispute Resolution can play a key role in addressing these issues, but it requires practitioners to take a steady and sensible path away from romanticised generic views transcending the many invalid assumptions and arguments that have complicated the justice arena for decades.

This paper identifies some of these challenges and barriers for an Alternative Dispute Resolution model that if delivered, may change the destiny and history of Aboriginal people in the NT and deliver real justice in our backyard.

Our warm thanks to Ms Leanne Liddle for presenting the 2020 ADR Address, to Chief Justice Grant of the Supreme Court of the Northern Territory for his collaboration in hosting the Address, and Aboriginal Broadcasting Australia for their generous support.

As part of the Australian Disputes Centre’s annual ADR Address Series this is ‘broach-church’ free event. We hope you enjoy!
