This unit examines the processes of knowledge-making in relation to the policy development arena and Indigenous Australia. The concept of the metaphorical and contingent nature of knowledge-making is explored and the implications of this ontological assumption are critiqued in the light of both historical and contemporary interactions between different knowledge traditions operating within Australia. Issues of power relations and the politics of representation are analysed in the light of the development of socially and culturally respectful and accountable policy and its implementation.
