This unit explores the nexus between public policy, citizenship and the social positioning of Indigenous people in Australia and other 'fourth world' countries. The unit focuses on the changing relationship between Indigenous peoples and nation states as they are manifested in historical and contemporary constructs of citizenship. The first two four lecture modules examine the positioning of Australian Indigenous people across the social, political and economic definitions and re-definitions of citizenship. The third module comparatively analyses the state/citizenship relationships of Indigenous people in Canada, Hawaii, the United States, New Zealand and Nordic countries and will include web-based guest lecturer vignettes given by Indigenous scholars from these countries.
