Presented by Dr Virginia Marshall

Please join us for a presentation from Dr Virginia Marshall on The UN Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples (UNDRIP) and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Child Placement Principles.

The preamble of UNDRIP gives recognition to the right of Indigenous families and communities to retain shared responsibility for the upbringing, training, education and well-being of their children, consistent with the rights of the child. Articles 7(2) and 8(2)(d) affirms that Indigenous peoples shall not be subjected to forcible removal of children and that States shall provide effective mechanisms for the prevention of, and redress for any form of forced assimilation or integration.

The Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Child Placement Principles state that Aboriginal children should only be placed with non-Indigenous carers as a last resort. The forced removal of Indigenous children and the over-representation of Indigenous children in the statutory child protection system is a serious issue that must be confronted and the intergenerational impacts and cycle of poverty addressed. Australia’s state and territories have failed to ensure uniform international human rights principles. Why is legislative change overdue to address these issues?
