Negotiating the shared management of Matuwa and Kurrara Kurrara
Report
  • Dr Tran Tran
  • Lindsey Langford
Aug, 2015

One of the key aspirations of native title holders is the ability to independently make decisions about and take care of country. This aspiration is often realised through collaborative management arrangements such as joint management. For many native title groups, joint management is often the only substantive land management outcome, yet there has been little research into either its planning process or its drivers.

Monograph

This book deals in particular with 'settled' Australia, where native title - as a form of justice and recognition for Indigenous peoples - has proved an especially frustrating experience.

Submission
  • Dr Lisa Strelein
  • Zoe Scanlon
Jun, 2010

In this submission to the Attorney-General's Department, AIATSIS raises two key points. Firstly, despite the benefit that would be derived from the inclusion of this provision in the Act, a significant impediment still exists in s 47C(1)(c)(ii), which makes the operation of the provision optional. The provision should apply to all claims over areas of the relevant class. Secondly, this reform should be extended to all Crown land.

This paper sets out the attempts by Queensland South Native Title Services (QSNTS) to assist Traditional Owners to secure, at least, some recognition through the development and implementation of its Legal Services Strategic Plan (LSSP). It raises a number of best practice issues in authorising and progressing native title claims, identifies some of the issues that emerged in the implementation of the LSSP and examines the land summit processes, which were an integral part of the LSSP and which took place at Mitchell in October 2005 and Roma in June 2006.

Taxation of native title agreements
Monograph
  • Dr Lisa Strelein
May, 2008

This paper examines the agreement-making environment that surrounds native title, whether triggered and governed by the operation of the NTA or more broadly arising in a native title context. This includes the legal framework for acts directly affecting native title, the types of agreements being reached and how those agreements are structured. It then addresses the taxation treatments that might apply to native title and explores the complexity and ambiguity that arises in the intersection of two of Australia’s most intricate legal regimes.
