Abstract

The project to secure constitutional recognition of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples continues. This piece begins with a survey of progress on symbolic recognition. It then addresses the current national discussion, identifying debates about the nature of recognition, and a range of broader issues for the future. The major focus of the piece is then an analysis of the primary models that are under consideration to achieve substantive recognition of Australia’s first peoples in the Constitution.

Keywords: ATSI, constitutional recognition, substantive, symbolic
