Social justice and native title report 2013 launched

The Social justice and native title report 2013 was launched today by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Social Justice Commissioner, Mick Gooda.

The report examines the enjoyment and exercise of human rights by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples from 1 July 2012 to 30 June 2013, and marks 20 years of the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Social Justice Commissioner role.

'Looking back over the past 20 years, we have seen improvements in some areas. We are on the right track in working towards health equality, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander representation and constitutional reform. Sadly, there is little measureable progress in other areas, like involvement with the criminal justice system,' said Commissioner Gooda. 'We need a new narrative. We need to recognise that a human rights-based approach to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander issues is essential to sustainable improvements in our communities and families.'
