Since its commencement in March 2019, the Northern Territory Treaty Commission has consulted with Aboriginal people across the Northern Territory and conducted research to inform the development of a framework for Treaty negotiations between First Nations Territorians and the Northern Territory (NT) Government.

The work of the Treaty Commission has previously been outlined in an interim report delivered in March 2020 and a detailed discussion paper delivered in June 2020. This final report builds upon this previous work to deliver the Treaty Commission’s commitment to provide recommendations to the NT Government on the development of a framework for future Treaty negotiations. These recommendations are informed by a two-stage consultation process undertaken by the Treaty Commission in 2020 and 2021 - a desktop review of national and international Treaty models and consideration of the NT’s unique political, historical and legal context.
