This book explores criminal justice responses to Sudanese Australians, crime and victimization. Based on research in four major Queensland communities, it adopts a multi-faceted approach to capture the ‘voices’ of various interest groups. Challenging the concept that Sudanese Australian refugees are the criminal ‘other’ that primary definers such as the media or would have us believe, it also highlights the differently situated subgroups of Sudanese Australians with a focus on how individuals and groups develop and maintain a sense of belonging: not always successful and not always law abiding but by no means indicative of the reductive notion of the criminogenic refugee.
Introduction: Criminological perspectives on crime and refugees.- Research methods.- Media predictions and moral panics: Representation of Sudanese refugees in Australia.- Serious talking: Community consultations.- Queensland’s Sudanese community survey.- Police perspectives o Sudanese Australians.- Conclusion.
