By Don Fuller, Susan Bandias, Scott Holmes and Jeremy Buultjens


Made available by the Northern Territory Library via the Publications (Legal Deposit) Act 2004 (NT)."The main purpose of this paper is to examine the central arguments advanced by these two sides of the debate and the implications for public policy decision making and Indigenous people, within the context of the Northern Territory of Australia. As a result, substantial recourse will be made in this paper to the recent work and policy proposals of Beadman (2009; 2010) and to the views of Altman (2007). In addition, the paper points to the urgent need for a major overhaul of the manner in which services are delivered by public and private sector organisations to Indigenous communities in Australia." - IntroductionIntroduction -- Main policy periods in Australian Indigenous Affairs -- Welfare to Work: Early 2000's policy shifts -- Northern Territory Emergency response -- Working Future -- The Importance of Employment and Training -- Employment Opportunities -- The Military -- Benefits to the Indigenous population -- Economic Development -- The Northern Territory Intervention -- Problems of Intervention -- Conditions for Sustainable Indigenous Development -- The Relevance of Labour -- Market Pricing Signals -- The Urgent Need for Policy Changes -- Conclusions: The need for "Two Way Knowledge Engagement" -- References
