Indigenous Dispute Resolution
Indigenous Dispute Resolution and Conflict Management Case Study project
The need for greater research on Indigenous Dispute Resolution stems from the 2006 NADRAC report on Indigenous Dispute Resolution and Conflict Management. NADRAC’s report talked about the limitations of conventional statistical collection in the context of Indigenous disputes and advocated individual case studies instead.
The Federal Court of Australia in collaboration with the Australian Institute of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Studies offered to undertake this case study research to identify examples of best practice in Indigenous dispute resolution and conflict management. NADRAC was a project sponsor.
The findings of this study are presented in the report `Solid work you mob are doing – Case studies in Indigenous Dispute Resolution and Conflict management in Australia'.
On the basis of this report, NADRAC has made recommendations for the Attorney‑General’s consideration.
