Reconciliation processes have informed Nation States’ relationships with its Indigenous peoples; for example, South Africa and Canada. In Australia, reconciliation has shown to be a sometimes-contentious process because basic human rights of Indigenous Australians remain largely unacknowledged. This course is designed to facilitate the process of interpreting policy and making the intentions behind them practicable in the workplace. Students will gain further investigate how an interrogation of policy and self can lead to improved workplace practice and outcomes.

This course focuses on policy, particularly policy that is designed to bring First Nations and non-native peoples together. An analysis of policies, existing and historical will be broken down to why do they exist and what do they hope to achieve and how can we achieve that outcome. Questions of what is reconciliation, the historical context around reconciliation and the development of Aboriginal protocols and how they are applied to black/white relationships will be explored. An analysis of historical and contemporary contexts will be translated into ways that policy can be practically applied and continually reviewed.
