Negotiating consent determination: Cooperative mediation - the Thalanyji experience

Mass media Indigenous Politics Australia

This paper argues that, irrespective of the statutory framework, native title claims are best and most expeditiously resolved by negotiation and consent when the National Native Title Tribunal and the Federal Court work cooperatively and in a complementary fashion. The case of the negotiation and resolution by consent of the Thalanyji claim is used to illustrate this argument.
