Summary
Discusses the ideological basis of both Labor and Coalition Indigenous affairs policies over the last 23 years; Labor followed a rights based agenda based on the concept of self-determination; Coalition policies for the first nine years of the current term of government have been labelled 'practical reconciliation' and more recently 'the quiet revolution'; argues that both approaches have failed to deliver substantial improvements in Indigenous well-being; critique of the COAG trials and the randomness of SRA's; mainstreaming reduces Indigenous input into policy and programs; Labor will continue to value self-determination and the rights agenda but must focus more on outcomes and be prepared to take part in the welfare debate; need to set achievable goals with agreed benchmarks and performance indicators; Indigenous affairs in Australia is on the periphery of politics, political parties should contribute to the solution rather than act as barriers to progress
