There are course requisites for this subject. See access conditions.


Local Government and Indigenous Governance recognises that across Australia local governments are uniquely positioned to cooperate with the variable forms of Indigenous local governance, and that local government employees need knowledge and skills for working with these governance forms and with Indigenous peoples and communities more generally. This subject brings together four modules that deepen students’ understanding and broaden their knowledge of Indigenous governance practices, as well as placing an emphasis upon social justice, principals of equity, access, participation and rights. The focus of the subject is primarily on NSW Aboriginal history, people, places, policies and best practice in local government. This provides a case study for these learnings across Australia.
