The ‘Getting Outcomes Sooner’ workshop took place at the Novotel Barossa Valley Resort between 24 and 26 July 2007, under the joint sponsorship of the Native title Research Unit (NTRU) at the Australian Institute of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Studies (AIATSIS) and the National Native Title Tribunal (NNTT).
This report discusses key issues that arose in the workshop and works towards identifying some possible best practice principles and associated strategies. It incorporates responses to a pre‐workshop questionnaire and post‐workshop evaluations and feedback from participants on a draft of this report.
This report was written for an audience familiar with native title processes. For readers unfamiliar with native title processes an overview has been provided at Appendix 2. Appendix 3 outlines the various State and Territory approaches to the preparation and assessment of connection reports.
