Philosophy PhD student Vincent Redhouse presents TED talk: 'A fair go for self determination'

Tuesday, 1st August 2017 (All day)

ANU Philosophy PhD student Vincent Redhouse presents TED talk in Canberra: 'A fair go in self determination'.

'Using evidence from US Federal Indian Policy, specifically its self-determination policies, the case will be made that the most efficient strategy for Closing the Gap would be to grant Indigenous Australians a much more substantial role in determining, shaping, and implementing the policies that directly affect them. In the US, it took nearly twenty years for self-determination policies to start producing positive outcomes for Indigenous Americans. In Australia, those types of outcomes will likely take much longer. Australian citizens will need to remain patient and supportive of self-determination policies if they are to work.'
