Understand the opportunities and challenges of treaty for transforming relations between First Nations and settler societies
The Australian Centre's Treaty Education explores how treaties function in relations between Indigenous peoples and contemporary settler societies. You will learn to analyse how treaties have shaped past interactions and to understand the possibilities they open for future relations. Key to this is understanding the concept of contested sovereignty as foundational to the contemporary state. These analytical skills are crucial to developing successful treaties and lawful relations with Indigenous people.
