A future for Indigenous youth?

  • Year: 2004
  • Author: Beadman, Bob
  • Journal Name: Policy: a Review of Public Policy and Ideas
  • Journal Number: Vol.20, No.3
  • Country: Australia

The future of Indigenous communities depends on the introduction of a new framework of government assistance that focuses on mutual obligation requirements, rewarding of initiative not idleness, and policing of school attendance. The author explains how a set of mutual obligation principles for the bush would work, and how the Land Rights Act must be amended to allow for individual home ownership and to encourage big business to migrate to Indigenous lands. It also discusses options for addressing governance and regional development, customary law, and substance abuse.
