Unfinished business : the Australian formal reconciliation process. /

by Gunstone, Andrew.

Publisher: North Melbourne, Vic. Australian Scholarly Publishing 2007Description: vi, 345 p.Notes: Includes bibliographical references (p. 304-324)Summary: Responding to apathy and racism, to unacceptable outcomes for Indigenous people on basic indicators such as health and housing, and to Indigenous anger about the abandonment of promises to implement national and rights and a treaty, the Hawke Government proposed a formal ten-year reconciliation process in 1991. In this book the author, from Monash University s Centre for Australian Indigenous Studies, examines the successes and failures of the process of reconciliation over the decade 1991 2000. He concludes that the failure to achieve its goals was due not only to the Howard Government s policies but also to other factors such as competing motivations, the impact of nationalism, and the development of a narrowly socio-economic notion of justice.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).

A stronger, fairer Australia /

by Australia. Department of the Prime Minister and Cabinet. ustralian Social Inclusion Unit.

Publisher: Canberra, A.C.T. Department of the Prime Minister and Cabinet 2009Description: 86 p. : ill.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: Bibliography p. 82-86Summary: Despite the high levels of economic growth recorded in Australia over the last decade, too many Australians are still excluded from the opportunities they need to create the life they want. They can be trapped in a spiral of disadvantage caused by family circumstances, low expectations, community poverty, lack of suitable and affordable housing, illness or discrimination often leading to early school leaving, long-term unemployment and chronic ill-health. The Australian Government, assisted by the Social Inclusion Board, has developed a set of principles to guide governments, businesses, community organisations and individuals as they formulate social inclusion programs.Our social inclusion priorities have been selected by using evidence about the causes and consequences of social and economic disadvantage. These priorities, where disadvantage is often a result of multiple, complex and interconnected barriers to participation, are: targeting jobless families with children to increase work opportunities, improve parenting and build capacity; improving the life chances of children at greatest risk of long term disadvantage;reduce the incidence of homelessness; improving outcomes for people living with disability or mental illness and their carers; closing the gap for Indigenous Australians; and breaking the cycle of entrenched and multiple disadvantage in particular neighbourhoods and communities.Availability: (1)

People on country : vital landscapes, Indigenous futures /

by Altman, Jon (ed.) | Kerins, Se n (ed.).

Publisher: Annandale, N.S.W. Federation Press 2012Description: xxii, 250 p. : ill.Notes: April 2012 Includes bibliographical references and indexSummary: Over the past four decades Aboriginal people living in remote and regional Australia have been empowered by land rights and native title laws to claim back large tracts of their ancestral lands. Today the Indigenous estate covers over 20 per cent of the continent and includes areas of globally significant biodiversity and cultural value, many now declared as Indigenous Protected Areas in the National Reserve System. But none of the Indigenous estate is in its pre-colonial condition and it faces a myriad of environmental threats. This book draws on a diversity of perspectives to document a significant social and environmental movement that is quietly gathering momentum across this vast Indigenous estate. This series of essays, drawn from an unusual collaboration between university researchers and Indigenous land owners, tells a little-known story about Aboriginal people who are living on, working on and caring for the lands and seas that they own and manage. The ongoing struggles by Indigenous people to conserve and rehabilitate the outstanding natural and cultural values of their ancestral lands deserve wide recognition and acclaim. This book seeks to reposition Indigenous people and their caring for country activities from the margins to the very core of the growing national conversation on issues such as climate change, biodiversity loss and resource depletion. It challenges the Australian public, policy community and politicians to re-imagine the role that the Caring for Country movement, deploying a mix of western scientific and Indigenous ecological knowledge systems and techniques, must play in the proper environmental management of Australia in the 21st century.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).

Economic impact of closing the Indigenous gap in remote and very remote Australia /

by Access Economics.

Publisher: Alice Springs, N.T. The Cooperative Research Centre for Remote Economic Participation 2009Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: August 2009 Includes bibliographical references "Report by Access Economics Pty Limited for Economic Futures Australia."Summary: Access Economics have been asked by the CRC to explore the likely economic benefits of two of the research areas proposed for the new CRC involving Indigenous populations of remote areas. Collectively, the objectives of these two areas is to 'close the gap' in Indigenous disadvantage, specifically to increase Indigenous outcomes in areas such as health, labour force participation, educational attainment and literacy to a closer or the same level as non Indigenous Australians. ; The following report is designed to supplement the CRC re-bid. It explains and justifies the link between 'closing the gap' and broader economic impacts. The approach estimates of the overall economic impacts of closing the gap. It does not address the question of whether the gap would be closed by the CRC research, or nor does the approach accommodate the costs of doing so. In this sense, it presents a potential upside if the research is successful, rather than a forecast per se.Availability: (1)
