Where we are up to 

Recommendations from the evaluations of the Aboriginal Justice Agreement Phase 3 (AJA3) are being used to inform changes to processes, programs, partnership and place-based approaches under AJA4. This is evident in the establishment of Collaborative Working Groups, changes to Regional Aboriginal Justice Advisory Committee’s plans, the draft monitoring, evaluation and learning framework and partnership survey.


Previous evaluations of the AJA were completed as single projects. This approach had limitations given the breadth and depth of activity of the AJA. To ensure the extensive engagement of Aboriginal community members in evaluation activities, the evaluation of AJA3 was split into discrete projects including a synthesis of previous evaluations of AJA programs, an evaluation of the AJA partnership and a place-based evaluation.
