Overturning aqua nullius aims to cultivate a new understanding of Aboriginal water rights and interests in the context of Aboriginal water concepts and water policy development in Australia.
In this award-winning work, Dr Marshall argues that Aboriginal water rights require legal recognition as property rights, and that water access and water infrastructure are integral to successful economic enterprise in Aboriginal communities. Aboriginal peoples’ social, cultural and economic certainty rests on their right to control and manage customary water.
The book will be launched by The Hon Michael Kirby AC CMG at the Moot Court of the University of Technology, Sydney, at 11am on the 22nd February. Following the official launch light refreshments will be served and the author, Dr Marshall will be available to sign copies of the book.
Overturning aqua nullius (RRP $39.95) and other Aboriginal Studies Press titles will be available for purchase at the launch.
