Background paper on the value of a benchmarking framework to the reduction of indigenous disadvantage in the law and justice area by Greg Marks( Book )
4 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 48 libraries worldwide
The Australian legal and political system increasingly operates in an international context. Consequently, policy development and program implementation at the national level must take account of international standards and practices. This is especially the case in the area of human rights, and for settler societies such as Australia the human rights of Indigenous people are a particular focus. The recognition that Indigenous peoples often suffer significant disadvantage, poverty and distress has been significant in focusing attention on the human rights situation of such peoples. This situation is characteristically evident in the area of law and justice. However, international human rights standards provide guidance in respect of the rights of Indigenous peoples with reference to law and justice matters. This guidance addresses the disadvantage experienced in the interaction of Indigenous peoples with the law and justice systems of nation states, including the obstacles they face in maintaining and applying their own laws and customs, at least in relation to their own internal affairs
Coercive governance and remote Indigenous communities : the failed promise of the whole of government mantra by Greg Marks( Article )
1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
Article focusses on the government side of governance - 'government governance', rather than Indigenous governance, i.e. the arrangements for the delivery of programs and services to Indigenous communities by governments and the policies that underlie those programs and services [p. 7]; asks how effective are governments in their dealings with Indigenous citizens; argues that despite good intentions, governments are not very effective and have made only limited impact of Indigenous equality and disadvantage; discusses COAG principles for service delivery to Indigenous Australians and the 'whole of government' or connected government approach; discusses the abolition of ATSIC and the new administrative arrangements in Indigenous affairs from 2004; Ministerial Taskforce on Indigenous Affairs; Secretaries' Group on Indigenous Affairs'; Indigenous Coordination Centres; notes that the ANOA audit report of the whole of government approach foudn there was insufficient cultural awareness and sensitivity in delivery of programs and risked making decision-making processes more complex; establishment of the Strategic Interventions Taskforce within the Department of Families, Community Services and Indigenous Affairs; effective engagement with communities and opportunity for meaningful participation has been lacking in the new administrative arrangements; argues that the Northern Territory Emergency Response represents the whole of government philosophy taken to its extreme; discusses nation states and their responses to human rights, particularly in international law; the principle of informed consent has been adopted by the World Bank; suggests that international norms and best practice provide authoritative guidance in respect aof good governance, program implementation and service delivery to Indigenous communities [p. 15]
