ATI501 Neocolonialism, Advocacy and the Critique of Development

This unit explores the concepts of colonisation and neocolonisation in the light of contemporary Indigenous Australian experience. Theoretical perspectives on these and related concepts are deconstructed and examined in relation to students' professional experience and their potential role as policy developers, community development practitioners, advocates or representatives of Indigenous community groups or organisations. A critique of concepts including development, post-colonialism and anti-colonialism provides a basis for constructing a functional definition of an advocacy role and the reshaping of the development and post-development discourses.
