The 'Intervention' Legislation - 'Just' Terms or 'Reasonable' Injustice?: 'Wurridjal v the Commonwealth of Australia'

Bielefeld, Brooke (Shelley)


The case of Wurridjal v The Commonwealth of Australia is discussed to arrive at a better understanding of how structural racism systematically disadvantaged indigenous people in the contemporary politico-legal environment. The basic message being conveyed through the Intervention is that it is perfectly acceptable to discriminate against Indigenous Australians and also enact legislation to this effect.
