Seventh Michael Kirby Lecture

When: 6pm, Friday, 11 October, 2013

Venue: Whitebrook Theatre, Lismore campus,
Southern Cross University

Speaker: Professor Megan Davis, Director, Indigenous Law Centre, University of New South Wales

Topic: Indigenous Australians and the Constitutional Project: The Politics of Discrimination, and Why 'Recognition' is not Enough.

This Lecture will consider the most recent constitutional project: the 'recognition' of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples in the Constitution of Australia. Professor Davis will explore the politics of racial non-discrimination in the current constitutional reform process and explain why 'soft' recognition – the trend in State Constitutions – should be disavowed.
