INDIGENOUS STUDIES & SETTLER COLONIALISM

Indigenous Studies

This collection of works presents various ideas that write back against settler colonialism. Whilst they may not always be decolonial in their methodology or outcome, they do, in their own way attempt to support First Nations’ livelihoods and self-determination.

Settler colonialism & policy

First Nations people in Australia face ongoing attempts of dispossession, oppression and, elimination by the settler state. These attempts often osculate between explicit and chaotic degradation of First Nations people and the day to day systemic and often bureaucratic decisions carried out through policies and processes that claim to be doing good. My small contribution to this area of inquiry examines the relationship between settler colonialism and social and development policy.
