Professor Ian Anderson AO

The Indigenous Affairs and Public Administration: Can't be do better? conference brought together experts, public sector leaders and critical Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander voices, as well as Indigenous perspectives from New Zealand, Canada and the United States. 

The speakers sparked ’courageous conversations’ around the need for change in Indigenous policy, the need to respect and learn from Indigenous culture and the best ways to ensure genuine involvement of Indigenous people and communities in policy development and implementation.
