Discussion Paper released

We’ve now released our second consultation document for this Inquiry, a Discussion Paper. Review of the Native Title Act 1993 (DP 82) contains a range of proposals and questions around connection requirements for the recognition and scope of native title rights and interests; authorisation; and joinder provisions. 

The ALRC invites individuals and organisations to make submissions in response to the Discussion Paper by 18 December 2014. Submissions can be made in writing by post or by email or using the online submission form.

The ALRC will now undertake a further round of national consultations and will provide its Final Report to the Attorney-General by the end of March 2015.
