"It's your rights, ok?": Explaining the 'right to silence' to Aboriginal suspects in the NT

CAEPR events - Mon, 2017-06-26 17:05
19 Jul 17 Seminar Alex Bowen Contact person:  Tracy Deasey Contact email:  caepradmin.cass@anu.edu.au Contact phone:  02 61250587

The requirement to tell suspects about their right to avoid self-incrimination ideally puts all suspects in an equal position at the start of a police interview. However explaining the right to silence to some Aboriginal suspects is notoriously difficult, and lack of understanding may further disadvantage some Aboriginal people who are already over-represented in the criminal justice process. A number of rules and policies attempt to regulate the way NT police communicate the right to silence.

Gillian Russell: Could there be no logic?

Philosophy - events - Fri, 2017-06-23 09:51
Date and time:  Tue, 27/06/2017 - 15:30 - 17:30 Seminar Philsoc seminar Centre for Consciousness Location:  Coombs Seminar Room A

The spectre of logical nihilism---the view that there is no logic---has arisen recently in the literature on logical pluralism.  Pluralists say that there is more than one correct logic, monists that there is only one.  But could there be none at all?  This paper looks at an argument for that view, and suggests a response.

In November 2000, at the Art Gallery of NSW, Sotheby's auctioned four collaborative paintings created by senior Pintupi Luritja men and women from the communities of Kintore, Mt Liebig and Kiwirrkurra. Their intent was to raise funds to set up a dialysis service in Kintore. What prompted these Aboriginal communities of the Western Desert to give such a high priority to dialysis treatment for kidney disease?
