Matters of race fundamentally shape the terrain of Indigenous policy design and implementation in Australia and elsewhere. In this unit, students build on their study in previous units to critically examine the development of racial ideas and theories, including whiteness studies, and how these continue to underpin policy developments and implementation in Australian and international Indigenous affairs. Students will explore literature and debates regarding institutionalised racism within the state and corporate sectors, and how this intersect with other registers of structural inequality, such as gender, class and ethnicity. They will engage in racial analysis of current policy initiatives in areas such as education, employment, health, community development and land and sea management, with a view to formulate alternative approaches for Indigenous policy making and practices.
