Abstract

[Extract] From the 1960s and 1970s and over a 30 year period, State, Territory and Federal governments in Australia have introduced legislation prohibiting discrimination. Human rights enshrined within this legislation include a right to be treated equally, regardless of one's gender, age, disability and/or racial background, inter alia. This article seeks to explore what has been achieved by and for Indigenous people in terms of a right to equality as the result of the introduction of racial discrimination law.
