The Colonial Fantasy. Why white Australia canít solve black problems. Other events...
This conversation between Sarah Maddison, the author of 'The Colonial Fantasy', and senior Noongar woman and scholar Colleen Hayward, will consider why settler Australia persists in the face of such obvious failure and why Indigenous policy in Australia has resisted the one thing that has made a difference elsewhereóthe ability to control and manage their own lives.

Sarah Maddison is Professor of Politics at the University of Melbourne and co-director of the Indigenous-Settler Relations Collaboration.

Professor Colleen Hayward AM is a senior Noongar woman and former Pro Vice Chancellor at Edith Cowan University.
