Redefining Indigenous Self-Determination in Australian Public Policy

Back to search results

Self-determination remains a key priority for Indigenous communities and organisations across Australia. Governments are repeatedly called upon to engage directly with Indigenous experiences and knowledge when formulating policy, however consultation is often criticised as cursory or inappropriate. We seek proposals from students interested in exploring the potential for genuine self-determination and the pursuit of Indigenous policy priorities reflecting on changing expectations both inside and outside government. The candidate will consider the impact of Indigenous public servants in key agencies and the role of representative and advisory bodies including the National Congress of Australia's First Peoples and the Indigenous Advisory Council.
