Reconciliation project

Uniya's reconciliation project is founded on the belief that harmony between indigenous and other Australians will be promoted when past mistakes have been acknowledged and symbolic as well as practical steps have been taken to make amends.

Uniya has a history of involvement in indigenous issues through Father Frank Brennan's contributions to native title discussions in the 1990s. Reconciliation is once again a major focus of our research and advocacy work. Our reconciliation project has several components:

  1. An overview of the ideology of reconciliation, including an international cross-cultural perspective.
  2. An analysis of the history and implications of mutual obligation.
  3. A watching brief on the emerging land rights and ownership debate.
  4. Writing and talks on conflict and reconciliation in popular culture.

The major aim of this project is to help re-ignite the reconciliation process by contributing to public information and debate.

As well as hosting our own contributions, this website will link you to relevant organisations, resources and events.

We welcome your involvement and feedback.
