Summary
Essay explores and explains how Australia's seemingly neutral laws contain and create bias for Aboriginal Australians; argues that cultural conflict extends to popular methods of alternative dispute resolution, particularly mediation models; looks at Eurocentric nationaliistic imagery and ideals that feature prominently in Aboriginal policy and in the way that the legal system treats Aboriginal rights particularly in relation to land; highlights the ways in which laws contain bias and thus work in in often unnoticed ways to create unequal power balance that disadvantages Aboriginal people; highlights the need for 'alternatives' to the legal system that provide fair, equitable and just outcomes to disputes; explores dispute resolution mechanisms used in Indigenous cultures; argues that cultural conflicts in relation to commonly used mediation models, as structured in many models is not an 'alternative' to the dominant legal system but an extension of it
