This report, released annually by the HREOC through the Office of the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Social Justice Commissioner, considers the impact of government activity on the exercise and enjoyment of Indigenous people’s human rights.

This year’s report provides 19 case studies of Indigenous communities tackling family violence and abuse, as evidence of what can be achieved in the fight against child abuse and family violence in Indigenous communities. The report also considers the human rights impact of the Northern Territory intervention. A ten point action plan is outlined for modifying the Northern Territory intervention. The reports includes 14 recommendations, 2 in relation to support for building on promising practices in family violence and child abuse, and 12 in relation to the Northern Territory intervention.
