Abstract

Violence is a public health problem. People who have criminal justice contacts are more likely to die and violence-related deaths are common. Not much is known about these deaths. This research will examine the violence-related deaths among young people who have justice contacts in Queensland. It will also examine violence-related deaths among adults who have been in prison from 12 different countries. This is the first study to comprehensively examine violence-related deaths in this group.
