A presentation by human rights lawyer and Sydney’s University of Technology academic, Dr Harry Hobbs, will make the start of Manning Clark House’s 2022 events program. Specialising in Indigenous legal issues, Dr Hobbs will focus on Indigenous treaty-making, including the importance of a treaty, what a treaty could look like, how it might be negotiated and how it would fit into the Uluru Statement from the Heart. No official treaty has been signed between Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and an Australian government, but in recent years, several states and territories have committed to discussions on a treaty.
