Document: CAEPR Seminar

This seminar explores the themes of a research project into reciprocal accountability and the public value created by Aboriginal organisations in the Kimberley. The concept of public value was advanced by Moore in the early 1980s when neo-liberal public management first threatened to dominate the administrative apparatus of the Anglophone states. It has been refined since, and offers an alternative, now that neo-liberal public management faces widespread public disillusion.

Document: Discussion Paper

Aborigines make up by far the largest proportion of the long-term residents of the Kimberley region and much of the population living outside the major towns. They already control, by one means or another, considerable areas of land. The Native Title Act 1993 offers the possibility of greater control still. They have a network of community-controlled functional organisations such as medical services, radio stations, service delivery resource agencies, cultural and language maintenance centres, and a publishing house.
