Subject outline

Heritage law is intended to protect and preserve natural, cultural and historical heritage and to make it available to the community. In this subject we will consider Australian local, state and national policy and law governing protection of indigenous and post-contact heritage. We will place Australian law in its international context, both as a matter of policy and to determine the Constitutional foundation for federal regulation in this area. We will then analyse substantive national and state laws protecting indigenous heritage. Using both case study and documentary critique we will analyse whether the protections afforded by these laws comply with international obligations and provide appropriate protection for indigenous heritage. We will also consider post-contact heritage at local, state and federal level. We will use a variety of presentation media to communicate the policy reasons for protection of heritage and the potential for heritage protection to disrupt other interests and lead to conflict. We will consider the variety of policy formation, consultation and conflict resolution techniques used in this field.
