Summary

This report brings together the general issues that are discussed in the Commission's individual death reports of the 18 deaths in the three states and the reports of the Aboriginal Issues Unit in each State. It also seeks to provide a general context to the individual inquiries by looking at some of the general circumstances of the Aboriginal communities from which the individuals who died came, including current legal, cultural and social circumstances of those communities, their history, and their relations with the general community in those States and its institutions.
