Reproducing exclusion or inclusion? Implications for the wellbeing of Indigenous Australian children

17 Mar 2004
Description

Anne Daly and Diane Smith examine the analytic usefulness and practical implications of the concepts of 'exclusion' and 'inclusion' in a cross-cultural context. The focus is on the socioeconomic wellbeing of Indigenous children, in the context of the families and households in which they live, and an alternative perspective with an emphasis on Indigenous children's inclusion and participation within their own culturally based family, social and economic systems.

The authors suggest that cultural inclusion in the Indigenous domain may be intimately linked to economic inclusion in another. If this is the case, choice about the form that economic participation should take, and the need for equitable access to economic opportunities, become critical factors for Indigenous children and their parents, families and households.
