21 Jul 17 Seminar Professor Robert Anderson Contact person:  Tracy Deasey Contact email:  caepradmin.cass@anu.edu.au Contact phone:  02 61250587

In his presentation, Professor Anderson will explore possibilities for international Research Partnerships exploring Indigenous economic development activities. The central thrust of the argument will be the increasing relevance of such work beyond the particular Indigenous context, to the broader task facing all people as they respond to society's 'Grand Challenges'. He will do so in three sections, encouraging discussion through-out.

The three sections are:

02 Aug 17 Seminar Jonathan Kilgour Contact person:  Tracy Deasey Contact email:  caepradmin.cass@anu.edu.au Contact phone:  02 61250587

This seminar will present a case study about the Ruapehu Whānau Transformation Project (RWT), based in the rural interior of the North Island of Aotearoa (New Zealand).   The RWT began as an iwi-focused project. Over six years later it has become an exemplar of whole-of-community development, led by a local iwi, utilising collective impact and design thinking to regenerate three small towns (Ohakune, Raetihi and Waiouru).

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

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.

26 Jun 17 Seminar Professor Alan Cass Contact person:  Tracy Deasey Contact email:  caepradmin.cass@anu.edu.au Contact phone:  02 61250587

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?

Indigenous Data Sovereignty

Wed, 2017-05-03 17:02
24 May 17 Seminar John Taylor Contact person:  Tracy Deasey Contact email:  caepradmin.cass@anu.edu.au Contact phone:  02 61250587

In the age of 'big data' debates about 'data sovereignty' have been dominated by national governments and multinational corporations focused on issues of access and legal jurisdiction. Missing from those conversations has been consideration of the inherent rights and interests of indigenous peoples regarding the collection, ownership and application of data about their people, lifeways and territories. In this seminar I report on new thinking and emerging practice regarding an assertion of 'indigenous data sovereignty'.

10 May 17 Seminar Alyson Wright Contact person:  Tracy Deasey Contact email:  caepradmin.cass@anu.edu.au Contact phone:  02 61250587

Local involvement in how programs are delivered and implemented is supported by many working in community development and increasingly seen as important in public health, particularly in preventive health programs. Yet there are challenges for national program evaluation when decisions on implementation are devolved. These tensions play out in determining: how to define, standardise and measure national objectives, what measures to use in evaluation and who is responsible for collecting and analysing the data.
