Indigenous governance at the crossroads: the way forward

Aboriginal Australians Local government Australia

Current governance structures in remote Aboriginal communities are in urgent need of reform. In this paper, John Cleary argues that the Northern Territory Government’s plan for Regional Shires is a step in the right direction, but we must be very clear about what is not working and how the new Shires will work. He supports the establishment of a simplified, amalgamated system of local governance and a clarification of the responsibilities of existing organisations.
