Research output: Contribution to journalComment/opinion


In the weeks since Australia experienced yet another mid-term change of prime minister, there has been a lot of bizarre behaviour and decision making to unpack. But if we consider the widely condemned move to create the position of 'special envoy of Indigenous affairs' and the choice of a non-Indigenous man, Tony Abbott, to fill this role, we can begin to understand the level of condescension and paternalism which seems to be a staple of the current government.
