A new discussion paper developed by eight leading researchers with decades of research experience on remote Indigenous unemployment has been published by The Australia Institute. The paper makes a case for major reforms to how livelihood and work programs operate in remote Australia.

The discussion paper will be the subject of a workshop to be convened with First Nation stakeholders in September.

In October, the authors will present two seminars at the Centre for Aboriginal Economic Policy Research at ANU on the discussion paper:

October 6: A post-mortem of the Community Development program: How and why it failed

October 20: Principles for a new approach to work and income in very remote Australia

More information on the seminars will be available soon.
