Details

Indigenous Affairs continues to be a controversial and fast-moving area of public policy and law, the latest issue being whether racial equality needs to be dispensed with in order to protect Indigenous children. This edition will cover the full scope of Indigenous legal issues in considerable depth, including extracts of key primary materials. Among the significant developments considered here are: the abolition of ATSIC and recent moves towards establishing a successor body (or bodies) to represent Indigenous Australians; the continuing need to 'close the gap' between the socioeconomic conditions of Indigenous and other Australians; the federal Government's 'Northern Territory Emergency Response' intervention in 2007; the change of national government later that year followed by the Commonwealth Parliament's 2008 apology to 'the Stolen Generations'; and The Palm Island case. There is a new chapter on International Law developments. The book concludes by surveying a number of outstanding issues on the agenda of social justice and reconciliation. The authors share the belief that the law has contributed to the disadvantaged position of so many Indigenous Australians, but that the law also has a key role to play in the search for solutions and reconciliation.
