Give your thoughts on Native Title Reform

Posted: January 25th, 2013

Filed under: ,

The Federal Government is seeking feedback on the proposed amendments to the Native Title Act. The Native Title Amendment Bill 2012 reforms three areas of the Native Title Act:

  • it clarifies the meaning of ‘good faith’ and makes amendments to the ‘right to negotiate’;
  • it allows parties to agree to set aside historical extinguishment in parks and environmental reserves;
  • and it makes some changes to the scope and processes for voluntary ILUAs.

Written submisions are due by 31 January, and should address the proposals for reforms and whether a balance has been struck between the views of different stakeholders.
