Kathleen Daly is Professor of Criminology and Criminal Justice, Griffith University (Brisbane). She writes on gender, race, crime, and criminal justice; and on restorative, Indigenous, and transitional justice. Her recent research is on conventional and innovative justice responses to sexual and violent victimisation in different contexts of violence; and on redress, restoration, and reparation.

In addition to continuing her research on redress for historical institutional abuse, she is involved in other projects. These are state-based financial assistance schemes for victims, Indigenous partner violence and pathways to desistance, and applying the construct of victims’ justice interests to different contexts of violent victimisation and justice.
