Etat du livre : New

Description :

Language: English . Brand New Book. This edited collection brings together some of Australia s foremost experts in native title to provide a realistic assessment of the achievements, frustrations and possibilities of native title, two decades since the enactment of the Native Title Act 1993 (Cth), and after the most significant High Court decision on native title in more than ten years, Akiba v Commonwealth, which confirmed the existence of commercial native title fishing rights. The Indigenous and non-Indigenous authors come from a variety of disciplines and perspectives and include academics and practitioners from the fields of law, economics, anthropology, politics, history and community development. Uniting the book is a concern that native title make a real impact on the economic and social circumstances of Australia s Indigenous communities. The book consists of two parts. Part One is entitled Legal Dynamics in the Development of Native Title. It examines the way in which Australian law has defined and often constrained the scope of this newly-recognised property right. There is a particular focus on legal issues with a direct bearing on the economic potential of native title, such as alienability and the right to trade resources and the challenges posed for anti-discrimination law. Part Two is entitled Native Title as a Vehicle for Indigenous Empowerment. Authors provide an overview of the contribution made so far by native title and the prospects for future empowerment. Detailed mapping and analysis provides readers with a geographic orientation and a sense of realism about the economic potential of the native title estate, in comparison with achievements under a parallel statutory land rights regime. This part also explains some of the challenges Indigenous groups face in areas such as governance, land reform and internal politicking, as they operate in the shadow of the law, seeking to utilise native title for greater empowerment.

Synopsis :

This edited collection brings together some of Australia's foremost experts in native title to provide a realistic assessment of the achievements, frustrations and possibilities of native title, two decades since the enactment of the Native Title Act 1993 (Cth), and after the most significant High Court decision on native title in more than ten years, Akiba v Commonwealth, which confirmed the existence of commercial native title fishing rights. The Indigenous and non-Indigenous authors come from a variety of disciplines and perspectives and include academics and practitioners from the fields of law, economics, anthropology, politics, history and community development. Uniting the book is a concern that native title make a real impact on the economic and social circumstances of Australia's Indigenous communities.

The book consists of two parts.

Part One is entitled Legal Dynamics in the Development of Native Title. It examines the way in which Australian law has defined and often constrained the scope of this newly-recognised property right. There is a particular focus on legal issues with a direct bearing on the economic potential of native title, such as alienability and the right to trade resources and the challenges posed for anti-discrimination law.

Part Two is entitled Native Title as a Vehicle for Indigenous Empowerment. Authors provide an overview of the contribution made so far by native title and the prospects for future empowerment. Detailed mapping and analysis provides readers with a geographic orientation and a sense of realism about the economic potential of the native title estate, in comparison with achievements under a parallel statutory land rights regime.

Critique: This collection of essays is greater than the sum of its parts, offering much to interested bystanders as well as to participants in the native title system. It not only presents an overarching analysis of native title, but also allows contributors to focus on different elements of the landscape and air disagreements on some key issues. As a result, its seventeen chapters resonate with ideas and analysis, and display both the vibrant state of native title today and its dizzying complexity. Read full review... - Michael Dillon, Inside Story, July 2015 It has been a little over 20 years since the High Court's recognition of native title in Mabo v Queensland (No 2) and the subsequent enactment of the Commonwealth Native Title Act 1993. Despite high hopes for native title at that time, it has failed to live up to its expectations. The subsequent development of native title by courts and legislators has placed significant constraints on the ability for native title claim groups to gain recognition. This collection of essays traces the development of native title from Mabo to the High Court's recent decision in Akiba v Commonwealth, which appears to adopt a less rigid approach to the existence and extinguishment of native title rights. The authors ask how native title can be better used as a tool to effect change and as a source of empowerment for Indigenous people? This book is divided into two parts. The first part deals with the legal dynamics in the development of native title. It addresses the problems inherent in the current doctrine of native title, such as its inconsistency with other types of property rights; the requirement for maintenance of traditional laws and customs, which does not take adequate account of English settlement; and the High Court's "bundle of rights" approach to native title. The second part considers native title as a vehicle for Indigenous empowerment. Case studies of successful strategies are given, including the Noongar Native Title Settlement with Western Australia. Issues such as self-governance of native title claim groups, the means by which members of a claim group are identified and native title as a means of economic enhancement are also considered. This book is a thorough look at native title from a variety of perspectives, and at the place of native title within a broader conception of property. It is of interest to native title practitioners, law and policy makers, social justice advocates and those with an interest in property law more generally. - Queensland Law Reporter - 3 July 2015 - [2015] 25 QLR
