Public Lecture by Jon Altman
4 September, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pmFree
The Indigenous Land and Justice Research Hub Public Lecture will be on “Prospects for development on Indigenous Lands”.
About the Lecture:
Since federation in 1901 the settler state has imagined that Australia’s north would be developed just like the south by the ‘white’ race. But in the last 40 years, more and more of the north has been legally returned to Indigenous ownership under land rights and then native title laws. Much of the land returned has historically not been amenable to ‘free’ market capitalist forms of economic development hence its ‘repossession’.
