Internal colonialism in Australia

Christine Jennett

Research output: Book chapter/Published conference paperChapter (peer-reviewed)peer-review


This chapter is concerned with theories about two aspects of the social structure ' race and ethnic relations, and nationalism ' and the conditions under which these types of relations become ordered in an internal colonial way. The concepts of core-periphery relations, national integration and dependent development are central to the discussion which empirically is focused on the shift between two types of internal colonial racial order in Australia, i.e. from paternalistic internal colonialism (1901-1971) to plural internal colonialism (1972-1996).
