SCS210 Indigenous Australia and the State


This course examines questions regarding the origins of the Australian state vis-a-vis the country's indigenous population and the nature of the contemporary state and bureaucratic government as the central mechanism which articulates public policies. State Indigenous policies such as assimilation, self-determination and reconciliation are evaluated from both Indigenous viewpoints and theoretical explanations concerning racial and ethnic inequality and the role of the state. Furthermore, you will critically explore the current situation of Indigenous Australians in areas such as employment, health, criminal justice and native title.
