Aboriginal Activism and Law Reform

Back to search results

Since 1901, major constitutional and public law reforms with respect to Indigenous rights have come about as a consequence of Aboriginal activism, yet little has been done to properly map the direct link between activism and reform. This project will explore the constitutional and public law reforms that have been initiated and achieved as a consequence of Aboriginal protest and activism. By providing a better understanding of how protest and activism has achieved these reforms, the project will contribute to ongoing debates about how the Australian liberal democracy can best accommodate the interests of Indigenous peoples within existing political institutions and the adversarial mechanism of Parliament.
