Innovative Indigenous policy


Professor Ian Anderson, one of Australia’s leading Indigenous health experts and foundation Chair in Indigenous Health at the University of Melbourne recently dropped by Eidos Institute to comment on some of the countries most pervasive issues of Indigenous inequality and disadvantage.

Professor Anderson is currently involved in an Eidos Institute research report on innovative policy making in the area of Indigenous employment.

He highlighted the importance of the economy and the emergence of an Aboriginal middle class as key factors for continual growth and development broadly across the ‘Closing the Gap’ initiatives.

“What has been missing is social change in broader mainstream society and particularly within the economy,” he said.
