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

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.

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?

Unconstrained and accelerating greenhouse gas emissions associated with air travel threaten everyone's wellbeing. Popular discourse notwithstanding, neither efficiency gains nor voluntary action (via restraint or the purchase of carbon offsets) has any prospect of having a meaningful effect on emissions growth in this sector. The most common present-day response to the problem--encouraging voluntary, individual rational responses to those risks--cannot succeed due to the nature of human reason and the structure of the problem itself.
