    SSP Seminar Series | Speaking back to ‘Advancement’: Engaging in critical policy analysis with Aboriginal community-run organisations in Western Sydney

    In this seminar, Alexander Page (PhD student in Department of Sociology and Social Policy) will talk about the top-down Indigenous Advancement Strategy implemented by the Commonwealth government in 2014. By analysing the impacts on Indigenous community-run organisations due to lack of consultation pior to implementation, and neglecting demands to alter these arrangements, Alexander argues that listening to the voices of Indigenous service delivery professionals affected is vital to transforming the state-sector relationship in Australia.
