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