Research on sovereignty, self-governance and treaty

Project Summary

Melbourne University’s Indigenous Law and Justice Hub is collaborating with the First Peoples Assembly of Victoria (FPAV) to conduct research made available in accessible communications, on the relationship between Indigenous self-governance, sovereignty and treaty.

This research will be used by the FPAV and Indigenous communities across Australia to design treaty negotiation strategies that centre the Indigenous ‘right of self-government’ in persuasive, legally sound, and politically durable ways.
