Tradition, adaptation, the ‘Tide of History’ workshop: Issues for anthropology in research for native title claims and their aftermath

Research outputs

While legal decisions, negotiated outcomes and related commentary have indicated that establishing native title rights does not require an unchanging body of traditional law and custom, in practice this remains a difficult and contested area of anthropological research. Further challenges are encountered in the implications of changing law and custom for managing and implementing acknowledged rights arising from claims.
