Nation Building and Development

Nation Building Project

Nation rebuilding is about how Indigenous peoples can pull together and implement the tools –rules, processes, checks, balances, structures of governance—they need to build the futures that they want

Governance for nation rebuilding is about the practical mechanisms that Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people use to collectively organise how they go about trying to get the things done that matter most to them. It is self-determination in action.
