Indigenous Health: Power, Politics and Citizenship

By Dominic O'Sullivan

Indigenous health: power, politics and citizenship examines the contemporary Indigenous Australian health policy as a site of contest over the nature of Indigenous citizenship and 'belonging' to the modern state. This book uses Western and Indigenous political theories to examine politics and public policy as determinants of health and to show the ways in which policy failure is partially explained by dysfunctional political relationships, policy inertia and the poitical system itself. The book considers the claims that Indigenous people can reasonably make on the public health system and examines what these claims mean for contemporary Australian conceptions of citizenship, democracy, and human rights.
