The royal commission is launching in a fortnight and will focus on issues including the treatment of Indigenous women, the deaths of indigenous women and girls, and violence against Indigenous women.

The commission will hear from the families of the missing and the families and survivors of violence against women, including the deaths at sea.

There is no timetable for the release of its final report, but the government has said the public should be aware of the findings before the commission’s final report is released in late September.

The inquiry has a long history of success.

The commission, established in 2013, is expected to hold hearings from July 8 to June 13 and release its final reports in early 2019.

In 2016, the royal commissioners held the first-ever hearing on child sexual abuse in Australian history.

It was the first time a royal commission heard from a child survivor, and it is believed to have changed the way child abuse is investigated in Australia.

The royal commission has been praised for providing critical information about what happened in the 1960s, 1970s and 1980s, and in particular for examining the experiences of children who were sexually abused at the hands of Aboriginal people.
