Course Description: This course examines Australian Indigenous politics in the comparative context of settler societies. First, it explores their historical dispossession and exclusion that left Indigenous people as citizens without rights and economically and socially marginalized in their own country. Second, it evaluates the ongoing processes of recognition and inclusion, including anti-discrimination measures, land rights, state and federal policy measures, and social policy and Indigenous initiatives that have marked the uneven path to reconciliation and recognition of the full rights and entitlements of Indigenous people, including special group rights and compensation. Students consider the complex political processes that produced the dispossession, and subsequent but incomplete, recognition of Indigenous people and their special entitlements and rights. Further, the course highlights the key issues, achievements, challenges, and failures in the troubled progress of Indigenous politics in Australia. By gaining an informed appreciation of comparative and historical contexts, and how Australia compares with other settler countries, students develop a deeper critical understanding of key political institutions, processes, and policies.
