Dialogue about land justice comprises a selection of papers by Australia’s leading thinkers, senior jurists and Indigenous leaders. It encapsulates the key issues that have been at the forefront of discussions about native title for a decade. The papers clearly place native title within a broader discussion of land justice and the place of Indigenous peoples in relation to the Australian political and legal framework.

An international perspective, including papers about Aotearoa New Zealand and the United States of America, provides a comparative understanding of Indigenous land rights and interests.

The papers have been presented to the national Native Title Conferences.

Contributors include: Mick Dodson, Marcia Langton, Noel Pearson, Chief Justice Robert French, Justice John Basten, Tom Calma, Aden Ridgeway and Graeme Neate. This volume is edited by Dr Lisa Strelein, Director of Research Programs, including the Native Title Research Unit at AIATSIS, whose research and publications focus on Indigenous peoples and the state, and the role of courts in defining Indigenous peoples’ rights.

Lisa Strelein is also the author of Compromised jurisprudence: Native title cases since Mabo.
