This paper focuses on the resolution of native title claims by negotiated outcomes and looks at the range of options for settlement expressly contemplated, or permitted, by the Native Title Act.

It looks in some detail at the various factors that can affect the pace and outcomes of negotiations, and discusses how and why an interest‐based approach to settlements is appropriate in many native title claim proceedings.
