Australian Aboriginal peoples are still suffering from the ongoing Northern Territory Intervention (NTI), an indigenous policy by the government which has been heavily criticized by the UN.
The NTI is a package of legislation, targeted directly at Aboriginal peoples but passed without adequate consultation with those people.
The legislation restricts and removes a range of human rights with the purported aims of improving development outcomes and protecting children from abuse.
It has a broad discriminatory impact on affected Aboriginal people, limiting their rights to property, social security, adequate standards of living, health and education, self-determination, work, child rights and remedies.
The Australian parliament’s 2010 efforts to revise the NTI also failed and the NTI measures are still in effect.
