Brighter lights on Capital Hill? Speculations upon federal framing and policy analysis of Indigenous issues
Duthie, Debbie Lee, Thompson, Lester J., & Wadley, David (2014) Brighter lights on Capital Hill? Speculations upon federal framing and policy analysis of Indigenous issues. Journal of Australian Indigenous Issues, 17(3), pp. 56-74.
Postwar Australian social policy has occurred within neoliberal, social-conservative and social democratic ideational frameworks. Recent perceptions vary from concern about high levels of public spending, through disquiet about cultural change, to fear that government inaction is ignoring community needs and creating fractious and unhealthy social conditions. this paper examines these alternate ideological influences as they could affect Indigenous Australians with a focus on the values and approaches that might lead logically to desirable outcomes. effective policy requires clarity and compatibility between government thinking and the social values of Indigenous people. At issue is how the objectives of policy for Indigenous citizens might be determined.
