In addition to the recently reported ARC success of Janice Rieger (ARC – Special Research Initatives) and Erin O’Brien (DECRA) – we are delighted to report more ARC success in the Centre.
ARC Discovery – Indigenous – Associate Professor Chelsea Bond (UQ) and also includes Dr Lisa Whop, Professor Mark Brough (QUT), Dr Bryan Mukandi (UQ) and Dr Alissa Macoun (QUT)

Dr Alisson Macoun, QUT Centre for Justice member and Professor Mark Brough, Chief Investigator, QUT Centre for Justice have been successful as part of a project team to undertake a four year project of $1.7 million which aims to develop Indigenist Health Humanities as a new and innovative field of inquiry, building an intellectual collective capable of bridging the knowledge gap that hinders current efforts to close the gap in Indigenous health inequality. Bringing together health and the humanities through the particularity of Indigenous scholarship, a deeper understanding of the human experience of health will be developed alongside a greater understanding of the enablers to building a transdisciplinary collective of Indigenous health researchers. The potential benefits include a more sustainable, relational and ethical approach to advancing new knowledge, advancing research careers and advancing health outcomes for Indigenous people.
This is a true cross-disciplinary and cross-institutional project looking at health, humanity, justice and Indigenous survival.

Centre Director, Professor Melissa Bull, Program Leader Professor Kerry Carrington and Dr Danielle Watson -all from QUT Centre for Justice – are part of a project team undertaking a four year project which aims to improve the Policing of Gender Violence in the Global South. Violence against women is twice the global average in Pacific Island Communities, yet most approaches about how to police it have come from the Global North. This project addresses this mismatch by discovering new ways to improve the policing of gender violence by testing unique models of women led policing. Expected outcomes include new evidence to improve the policing of gender violence, enhance victim’s experiences, and to reform laws. Expected benefits include better outcomes for victims, improved policing practices and reductions in gender violence. The project will foster increased engagement, knowledge transfer and partnership between Australia and Pacific Island Communities in line with Australian Government strategic priorities.
