Indigenous Australians and the Commonwealth Intervention, Paperback Book

Indigenous Australians and the Commonwealth Intervention Paperback


This volume focuses on the Indigenous Intervention and contains a multi-disciplinary collection of articles on:the Interventions effects on child safety and wellbeing; the seeming fact that enhanced prosecutions of Indigenous people post-Intervention are mainly for road traffic matters; the likely impacts of compulsory income management of welfare recipients in the affected communities; the impact of the 2010 amendments and whether the legislation and administration remain racially discriminatory; the impact of increased policing before and under the Intervention; the assimilative tendency of current outstations and homelands policies; and the paradox which sees an ostensibly benevolent intervention deprive Indigenous Australians in affected communities of control of many aspects of their lives.
