"Ask Us. This is Our Country’ – Aboriginal Children and Young People’s Participation in Public Decision-Making.

Dr Holly Doel-Mackaway

Children’s right to participate in decision-making about matters affecting them was enshrined in the Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC) 30 years ago.

This webinar details findings from field research about why and how young Indigenous people can participate in public decision-making processes as vital agents of change in this modern democracy.
