2010 Native Title and Social Justice Report
This week, the Australian Human Rights Commission (AHRC) launched the 2010 Native Title and Social Justice Report.
YMAC provided a comprehensive submission to the AHRC which has been quoted and referred to in each chapter of the report.
YMAC's views are represented on a range of issues, including:
the need to clarify the meaning of good faith in the Native Title Act;
the need to improve processes for meaningful consultation with Traditional Owners about reforms to the system; and
the need for Governments to implement the Guidelines for Best Practice in Agreement-Making, endorsed by Native Title Ministers in 2009.
