Overturning Aqua Nullius : Securing Aboriginal Water Rights (Paperback) (Viriginia Marshall)
about this item
Aboriginal peoples in Australia have the oldest living cultures in the world. From 1788 the British colonization of Australia marginalized Aboriginal communities from land and water resources and their traditional rights and interests. More recently, the national water reforms further disenfranchised Aboriginal communities from their property rights in water, continuing to embed severe disadvantage. Overturning aqua nullius aims to cultivate a new understanding of Aboriginal water rights and interests in the context of Aboriginal water concepts and water policy development in Australia.
