Chapter eight provides a summary of the key issues and arguments contained in the previous chapters. In particular, the chapter seeks to demonstrate the added value that can be had from the development of an explicitly Indigenous Criminology, including a critical focus on the process of colonisation as an explanatory framework for understanding the current status of Indigenous peoples in settler colonial criminal justice; that any attempts to understand the ‘Indigenous problem’ must take into account Indigenous perspectives, explanations and responses to social harm; and the development of Indigenous Criminology is an important component of the continued strive by Indigenous peoples for self-determination in all facets of their lives, including criminal justice.
