The Mabo Case: Its Significance for Australia and the World
A judicial revolution occurred in 1992 when the High Court discarded the doctrine of terra nullius in the Mabo case. The ruling had repercussions for Indigenous peoples within Australia and around the world, especially in Canada, New Zealand, and the United States. In this lecture presented by the Centre for Aboriginal Economic Policy Research (CAEPR), ANU College of Arts and Social Sciences, Professor Peter Russell considers the background and consequences of the Mabo case, contextualising

In the Wake of Economic Reform: New Prospects for a National Building State
  Has economic reform run its course? What potential remains for the resumption of nation building progress? Contrary to expectations Canberra emerges from 20 years of neo-liberalism with disciplined government, ample revenues, an effective regulative apparatus and – perhaps – the capacity for government to steer the economy towards a brighter future. In this lecture, Professor Pusey weighs these prospects against the negative impacts of neo-liberalism on our institutions and th

1.6.2 Education

Education is obviously one of the crucial dimensions in any attempt to develop a future European identity or at least more understanding and convergence among Europeans. If the school made the nation, it should also be a key factor in promoting Europeanness. Observers of the school scene in Europe acknowledge the existence of a growing sentiment of interest for European themes (institutions, politics, peoples, languages). Furthermore, the EU-based exchange programmes have recognised the impor

Around 1919 & in Mexico City
Mexico furnished the era of social and cultural change that started ‘right around 1910’ with its first popular revolution. By 1919 Mexico City had become a refuge for the world’s radicals. To a despairing world, it offered a unique site to safely experiment with all sorts of enchantments. In this culturally promiscuous capital not only the meaning of Mexico was at stake, but also the meanings of major modernist concepts –revolution, the popular, avant-garde, authenticity,

Divided We Stand: Political Reflections on the Federal Experiment
Was the federation of the six Australian colonies into a Commonwealth of Australia really such a good idea? What were the alternatives? Might there have been a better way of doing things? The hard and brutal fact is that the Federation in the end was a political compromise; it was a product of some ferocious horse-trading and Canberra is its monument. This lecture looks at the politics - as distinct from the legal and financial aspects - of Australia's federal arrangements. How the politica

Does China Play By Our Rules And How Much Does It Matter
The arrest of Rio Tinto executive Stern Hu, and more recently China's cancellation of a ministerial visit over Canberra's decision to grant a visa to Uighur figurehead Rebiya Kadeer has put Australia-China relations sharply in focus. Relations between these key trading partners appears rocky at a time many would have envisioned ties to be getting warmer. China's behaviour has prompted many to look at China's internal politics and rule of law, as well as the price paid for dealing with China and

13 Post-compulsory science education

Young people choosing vocational study will be able to see a ladder of progression that gives structure, purpose and expectation to their lives, in the same way that a future pathway is clear to those who leave school to gain academic A-levels and enter university. Over-16s in full-time education will be abl

5.14.3 Electrodialysis

Electrodialysis is an electrochemical process in which ion transfer separates salt from water. It is effective only for substances that can be ionized: for example, salt (NaCl) becomes, in solution, a mixture of Na+ and Cl ions. (Silica, on the other hand, does not ionize and hence is not removed by electrodialysis. It could, however, be removed by reverse osmosis.) When electrodes, connected to a suitable direct current supply, are immersed in a salt solution, curren

1.2 The hard side of Glasgow

Prior to its currently projected image of dynamism, Glasgow was regarded as the place which best illustrated all that was wrong with the modern industrial city: ‘Once called the “second city of the British Empire” because of its size and industrial might, Glasgow had sunk so low that even the locals disdained it’ (Bryson, 1989).

5.3.4 Plan testing and validation

It is one thing to have a plan; it is another thing to have a plan that you can rely on to work. There is an old military maxim that ‘A plan only gets you into first contact with the enemy. After that, you fly by the seat of your pants’ (Anon). A 1993 IBM report on business continuity planning confirmed this when it revealed that ‘half of the plans failed completely or substantially when they were first tested’ (IBM, 1993, p. 5).

The IBM report identified three categories of pla
