1996 Social Justice Report

The Fourth Report focuses on housing issues for Indigenous peoples. The report outlines current critiques of public housing, contains a detailed consideration of the proposed reform to the public housing industry and gives several examples of best practice in the area of housing and infrastructure policy for Indigenous people. The report critically analyses the "race debate" in Australia and considers the Government's Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Affairs policy. It examines options for diverting Indigenous young offenders from police custody and juvenile detention centres.
