AbstractResearch on perceptions of the criminal legal system has tended to mainly focus on attitudes toward the police and on minority groups other than Chinese communities. The aim of the present study is to measure perceptions of the integrity, competence, and fairness of the various elements of the criminal justice system among a Chinese migrant population residing in Brisbane, Queensland, Australia. Findings indicate that demographic variables have little impact on attitudes. But those who have experienced victimization, particularly male victims, see the justice system in a less favorable way. Policy implications of these results are also discussed. © 2014 Copyright Taylor and Francis Group, LLC.
