The broad question of aboriginal justice is important on the national agenda. This summary of a special edition of the Journal suggests that we are leaving individual aboriginal communities out of the policy debate, especially aboriginal women’s groups. This essay reviews the papers in this volume from the explanatory framework of Braithwaite’s (1989) Crime, Shame and Reintegration, and warns that there may not be consensus on approach within aboriginal communities.
