AIGI Submission: Closing The Gap Refresh 2018

Publication

AIGI believe that keeping the current objectives in place and adding additional targets in the areas of criminal justice and addressing systematic racism will create a strong basis from which Australian governments can assess their impact and effectiveness in a new Closing the Gap framework.

Furthermore, supporting locally controlled, culturally informed Indigenous governing bodies with genuine decision-making powers must form the core of a refreshed CTG agenda.

Recommendations

1. Clearly communicate who, how and for what purposes, information is being collected about Indigenous peoples and communities.
2. That the current targets in CTG remain.
3. Support Indigenous peoples and communities through vesting genuine decision-making powers in locally controlled, culturally informed Indigenous organisations.
4. Ensure that local Indigenous organisations are adequately resourced both financially and with the necessary skills.
5. Shift policy to a strength-based discourse.
6. Review the term ‘prosperity’.
7. That additional objectives be included in a refreshed CTG including:
a. Reducing the number of Indigenous peoples incarcerated; and
b. Addressing systematic racism.
8. That governments support sector-specific Indigenous advocacy groups, including the National Congress of Australia’s First Peoples as a national body representing the
interests of Indigenous peoples.
9. Indigenous community organisations be embedded in a refreshed CTG.
