Summary
There is still much to be done to close the gap between Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders and the rest of the population in terms of social and economic development, culture, land, education, health, justice and human rights. This book looks at the progress of key rights issues confronting Australia?s indigenous peoples, including historical civil rights milestones; land rights and native title; Reconciliation and the apology to the Stolen Generations; indigenous governance and self-determination; and constitutional recognition. Indigenous Rights also examines the government policy aimed at closing the gap in health and life expectancy, and human rights concerns over the ongoing federal intervention in Northern Territory communities. How should this nation right the wrongs visited upon the first Australians?
