Constitutional reform and Indigenous peoples

Description

In recent years Indigenous advocacy for constitutional reform has increased. It is often assumed that reform would improve the position of Australia?s first peoples, but this assumption is not always accompanied by detailed analysis or justification. This paper outlines a project at the Indigenous Law Centre that will undertake this analysis and provides some background on the debate and issues to date. The project aims to identify the main suggestions for reform to consider in detail what kinds of constitutional amendments concerning Indigenous people might be worthwhile.
