Mabo, Tampa and the non-justiciability of sovereignty

Maria Giannacopoulos

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


The year 2001, the centenary of federation, was the year of the Tampa and of Australia’s entry into the global war on terror. Since then, new border protection and security regimes couple with intervention in the Pacific to redraw our national and regional maps. Internally, new arrangements for Aboriginal communities redirect 1990s debates on sovereignty and self-determination. In this book commentators at the cutting edge of social and cultural theory link these developments together for the first time.
