We have arrived at the close of the United Nations International Decade of the World's Indigenous People (1995-2004) ('the International Decade'). The theme of the International Decade was 'Indigenous people, partnership in action'. The end of any program begs evaluative questions. What were the goals of the International Decade and have they been achieved? Elsewhere in this edition, Professor Mick Dodson argues that the position of Indigenous peoples in Australia has, in fact, gone backwards over the last 10 years. He says that the rights of Indigenous Australians have also not improved in line with international standards. Given the winding back of native title from its initial highs, is there now a place for a debate about human rights in the politics of Indigenous affairs in Australia, particularly in the context of the close of the International Decade?
