Distinguished Lecture 2017
School of Government and International Relations 2017 Distinguished Lecture will be presented by Centre member, Professor Ciaran O'Faircheallaigh. He will be speaking on Mining Royalty Payments and the Governance of Aboriginal Australia.
Mining royalty payments to Aboriginal landowners in remote Australia should represent a boon to what are among this country’s most disadvantaged communities. But the record of outcomes from these payments is mixed, and the very real successes that have been achieved are often overshadowed by tales of waste and lost opportunities. In this lecture Professor O'Faircheallaigh will draw on research conducted on the impact of mining royalties over three decades to explain successes and failures, and argue that the explanation has much to tell us about the governance of Aboriginal Australia more broadly. Success comes when Aboriginal people control decision making and develop accountability and management mechanisms that make sense in terms of their own social and cultural values and practices. The stubborn refusal of Australian governments to recognise and apply this lesson to policy development and implementation more broadly helps explain the continuing social and economic problems facing Aboriginal Australia. It also provides important insights into the nature of Australia’s relationship with its First Peoples.
The Lecture will be held at The Ship Inn Function Space, South Bank on Wednesday 9 August 2017.
