Discussion paper (Australian National University. Centre for Aboriginal Economic Policy Research) ; no. 2003/248.

Summary

This paper argues that a fundamental issue confronting Australian indigenous groups and communities is how to develop the capacity to engage strategically with the general Australian society, in particular with its political and economic dimensions. 'Strategic engagement' refers to the processes through which indigenous individuals, groups and communities are able to interact with, contribute to, draw from - and of course potentially reject - the formal and informal institutions of the dominant Australian society in a considered and informed manner that provides them with real choices as to where to go, and how to get there. It refers to a process, not an outcome.
