The concept of a 'Healthy Welfare Card', now renamed as the Cashless Debit Card (CDC), was a recommendation of the Forrest Review into Employment and Training (Forrest 2014).

It was seen as a development from income management which has been occurring in parts of Australia since the Northern Territory Emergency Response, when it was first introduced for Aboriginal communities there.

The CDC appears to operate a little differently from the Basics Card1 used in the Northern Territory income management program.

In his presentation, Professor Anderson will explore possibilities for international Research Partnerships exploring Indigenous economic development activities. The central thrust of the argument will be the increasing relevance of such work beyond the particular Indigenous context, to the broader task facing all people as they respond to society's 'Grand Challenges'. He will do so in three sections, encouraging discussion through-out.

This seminar will present a case study about the Ruapehu Whānau Transformation Project (RWT), based in the rural interior of the North Island of Aotearoa (New Zealand).   The RWT began as an iwi-focused project. Over six years later it has become an exemplar of whole-of-community development, led by a local iwi, utilising collective impact and design thinking to regenerate three small towns (Ohakune, Raetihi and Waiouru).

The requirement to tell suspects about their right to avoid self-incrimination ideally puts all suspects in an equal position at the start of a police interview. However explaining the right to silence to some Aboriginal suspects is notoriously difficult, and lack of understanding may further disadvantage some Aboriginal people who are already over-represented in the criminal justice process. A number of rules and policies attempt to regulate the way NT police communicate the right to silence.

In November 2000, at the Art Gallery of NSW, Sotheby's auctioned four collaborative paintings created by senior Pintupi Luritja men and women from the communities of Kintore, Mt Liebig and Kiwirrkurra. Their intent was to raise funds to set up a dialysis service in Kintore. What prompted these Aboriginal communities of the Western Desert to give such a high priority to dialysis treatment for kidney disease?

In the age of 'big data' debates about 'data sovereignty' have been dominated by national governments and multinational corporations focused on issues of access and legal jurisdiction. Missing from those conversations has been consideration of the inherent rights and interests of indigenous peoples regarding the collection, ownership and application of data about their people, lifeways and territories. In this seminar I report on new thinking and emerging practice regarding an assertion of 'indigenous data sovereignty'.

Local involvement in how programs are delivered and implemented is supported by many working in community development and increasingly seen as important in public health, particularly in preventive health programs. Yet there are challenges for national program evaluation when decisions on implementation are devolved. These tensions play out in determining: how to define, standardise and meas
