Project Details


‘Welfare Reform in Indigenous Australia’ aims to collect and analyse person-centred accounts of Aboriginal Australians’ experience of various welfare reform measures instituted between 2007 and 2017. Specifically, I seek funding for interview and field-based research into the Cashless Debit Card trial in Ceduna, South Australia.
Empirical research centrally concerned with reform participants’ own perspectives on these policy experiments has rarely been undertaken over the last decade. This research fills a critical gap in the literature in foregrounding Indigenous experiences, resulting in detailed, rigorous and richly described research outputs. This grant will lead directly to the publication of three sole-authored C1s about the Ceduna case study, and the production of a special edition of a reputable journal dedicated to the project’s broader topic.
