‘Racism alleged as Indigenous children taken from families - even though state care often fails them’.

Activity: Engagement case studiesCommunity


A contribution to public awareness and debate on a matter of public importance.

This activity is complex because it involves the collection, explanation, interpretation, and presentation of diverse and contested theoretical ideas. It is complex because it translates theoretically difficult concepts into easily understandable terms for a non-specialist audience and applies them to questions of contemporary public policy. It is complex because it draws on ideas developed through my research published over several years. This means that time and effort cannot be quantified with precision but that it is, nevertheless, substantial. The diversity of end-users is evident in the number of readers across at least five jurisdictions and the engagement plans and briefings occurred with the commissioning editor.
