Recognising Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples in our Constitution: Three Perspectives

The South Australian Chapter of the Australian Association of Constitutional Law is proud to host

 Recognising Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples in our Constitution –  

Three Perspectives

 On 19 January 2012, the Expert Panel on Constitutional Recognition of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples delivered its report to the Commonwealth Government. The Report recommended the formal recognition of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples in the Constitution.

The Government has not yet responded to the Report.

This seminar will provide three perspectives on the recommendations and the position of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples under our Constitution.

    I’m really interested in this event however I live in Sydney and will not be able to attend. What I was wondering is if the speeches made at the seminar will be accessible to the public after the event?

    Thank you in advance,

      Hi Jess
      Thank you for your interest in the event – I will be asking the speakers whether they will write an entry on our blog based on their speeches made at the event.
