The management of Indigenous housing for sustainable housing outcomes
This seminar is organised by the Australian Housing and Urban Research Institute (AHURI). The seminar will present early findings from current AHURI research on the management of housing for Indigenous people.
The event has been designed around an interactive panel discussion and audience involvement to tease out key research findings and their implications for policy and practice. The panel will focus on:
- the interaction between Aboriginal kinship practices and cultural obligations, and the provision of government housing assistance. The discussion will focus on how conditionality is always an exchange involving negotiations over differences in values and expectation. Particular attention will be given to tailoring housing assistance that works with rather than against Aboriginal practices, to achieve positive housing outcomes
- the nature of tenancy management arrangements in remote Indigenous communities and the factors influencing these. Discussion will focus on some of the emerging issues informing the delivery of tenancy arrangements across different jurisdictions. It will also raise questions about the housing outcomes of different models of remote tenancy management and the different conditions and contexts in which they optimally apply
- the nature and application of Community Land Trusts as an alternate approach for affordable housing provision for Indigenous communities.
The panel members are:
- Dr Louise Crabtree, AHURI Research Centre University of Western Sydney
- Associate Professor Daphne Habibis, AHURI Research Centre University of Tasmania
- Professor Mark Moran, AHURI Research Centre University of Queensland
- Ms Bronwen Overton-Clarke, Executive Director, Housing and Community Services, Community Services Directorate, ACT Government.
