Summary
Discusses the exclusion of Indigenous Australians from Australian national institutions (including Parliament, the Constitution and the judiciary); opines that this exclusion 'reflects a narrative of factual and ideological exclusion'; discusses failure of institutions to address recommendations in key documents such as the Royal Commission into Aboriginal Deaths in Custody, Report into the Recognition of Aboriginal Customary Laws, 'Bringing them Home' report; includes a history of institutional exclusion to 2005, including failure to negotiate a treaty, agreement, or bill of rights; lack of recognition; failure to address Indigenous sovereignty; notes that reform is linked to political leadership and hampered by the abolition of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Commission (ATSIC); includes a case study on judicial failure to protect women against violence in relation to Aboriginal customary law; advocates Indigenous consultation; warns Australian institutions have a poor history of Indigenous consultation; opines that inclusive measures would have good psychological benefit
