This course aims to develop student understanding of the role of public policy in shaping Indigenous communities. It considers case studies of policy development by Australian Commonwealth, State and Territory authorities. It provides students with a theoretical framework for understanding policy and policy development processes and observing how key actors and institutions shape policy outcomes. The course considers opportunities for participation and engagement in policy formulation, and reflects on past policies which have contributed to Indigenous disadvantage and marginalisation. Students will critically analyse past and current policies and develop their understanding of the important role that policy plays in shaping community.
