Prime Minister Malcolm Fraser and Paul Everingham sign documents giving self-government to the Northern Territory, 1978.
(NAA: A6180, 29/6/78/44)
When the Northern Territory was granted self-government in 1978 very little thought was given to what legal and institutional relationships needed to be established between the new NT government, the land councils, and traditional owners to enable a smoothly functioning system of government.
This talk will explore the issues surrounding the management and development of the Territory in light of the separation of powers since self-government.
Presented by Ken Parish, legal academic at Charles Darwin University and former Member of the NT Legislative Assembly.
