Abstract

Background to the study

  • Originally briefed from a heuristic from Legal Aid re types of cases prosecuted and 'cost'.
  • Soon apparent that a typical cost benefit analysis was not only a flawed approach but inherently misleading.
  • Mindful that arguing over 'numbers' was not going to approach the problem from a social accountability perspective.
  • Framed as a Wicked Problem within the Whole-of-Government literature.
