Join the Robert Menzies Institute for A Forgotten Platform for Reform: Indigenous Policy During the Menzies Era to be delivered by Nyunggai Warren Mundine AO on Wednesday 21 June 2023 5:30pm - 7:00pm (Formalities commencing at 6:00pm).
While it is often assumed that the Menzies era was a time in which Indigenous Australians received little attention from political leaders, the period saw a number of important innovations which deserve to be better remembered.
Menzies’s Minister for Territories Paul Hasluck introduced a wide range of reforms aimed at ensuring Indigenous Australians achieved legal and political equality in the Northern Territory, despite Indigenous Policy remaining a matter for the States until 1967. The States were not left alone to their own devices, as Menzies’s landmark 1962 Electoral Act overturned State-based bans on Indigenous voting in both Queensland and Western Australia. The Menzies Government established the Australian Institute of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Studies - which greatly expanded the knowledge and preservation of Indigenous culture. Menzies also laid the foundation for the famous 1967 referendum, while simultaneously warning of the dangers of having race in the Constitution in a manner highly prescient of the debates of today.
To discuss these issues and their nuances, the Robert Menzies Institute is proud to host Nyunggai Warren Mundine AO to deliver this lecture.
