Authorisation law is a set of principles about how the views and intentions of native title claimants or holders are translated into legally effective decisions. This book sets out the legal rules and their application in various situations such as native title claims, native title agreement-making, decision-making by native title corporations, and compensation applications. It also addresses key practical, ethical and political dimensions of native title decision-making.

This book is useful for native title practitioners including lawyers, judges and native title holders. It is also relevant to academic research into the ethical, political and anthropological dimensions of Indigenous governance.
