Dr Stan Grant delivers the Wallace Wurth Lecture at UNSW Sydney, a powerful and emotive speech entitled “From Reconciliation to Rights: Shaping a Bigger Australia.’ The speech comes in the wake of damning allegations about the treatment of Indigenous children in the Don Dale Youth Detention Centre in Australia’s Northern Territory. The Australian Government immediately called a Royal Commission. Dr Grant, however, argues the need for a national truth and reconciliation commission “a full reckoning of our Nation’s past that may set loose the chains of history that bind this country’s first and today most miserably impoverished people.” He also calls for a treaty with Indigenous Australians, similar to those in New Zealand, the United States.
