Aboriginal land recovery in NSW: Mechanisms and Prospects from 2017

Thu, 2017-04-06 12:19
19 Apr 17 Seminar Detail from Guach (2006) by Terry Ngamandara Wilson Associate Professor Heidi Norman University of Technology Sydney Contact person:  Tracy Deasey Contact email:  caepradmin.cass@anu.edu.au Contact phone:  02 61250587

New provisions in the Aboriginal Land Rights Act (ALRA) are forecast to see a six-fold escalation in land recovery from 2017 through negotiated settlement. Criticism of the slow and protracted native title determination in New South Wales will also see more expeditious processing of claims currently in place over more than 35 per cent of the state. These predominant land recovery statutes will have significant crossover with the conservation estate and Aboriginal land management interests, unique land grants (such as Goat Island) and divestment of the Crown Land estate.

The 2016 Northern Territory Legislative Assembly election compared: Strong winning party advantage and successful independents (including Indigenous)

Mon, 2017-02-20 16:43
08 Mar 17 William Sanders

By exploring a proportionality profile graphic for these ten elections, this seminar will expand on these observations and also show that:
