Dialogue about Land Justice encapsulates the key issues that have been at the forefront of discussions about native title for a decade, and clearly places native title within a broader discussion of land justice and the place of Indigenous peoples in relation to the Australian political and legal framework. Dialogue about Land Justice comprises a selection of papers presented to the national Native Title Conference, among them, Australia's leading thinkers, senior jurists and Indigenous leaders.
An international perspective, including papers about Aotearoa New Zealand and the United States of America, provides a comparative understanding of Indigenous land rights and interests.
My family and I are proud that so many respected leaders have spoken with such passion and insight over the past ten years. These men and women do justice to the legacy of Eddie's fight for title to his land, the land of the Mer people.
Mrs Bonita Mabo Contributors include: Mick Dodson, Marcia Langton, Noel Pearson, Chief Justice Robert French, Justice John Basten, Tom Calma, Aden Ridgeway and Graeme Neate. This volume is edited by Dr Lisa Strelein, Director of Research Programs, including the Native Title Research Unit at AIATSIS, whose research and publications focus on Indigenous peoples and the state, and the role of courts in defining Indigenous peoples rights.
Lisa Strelein is also the author of Compromised Jurisprudence: Native title cases since Mabo.
