- Decolonizing social work in Australia: prospect or illusion
- Briskman, Linda
- In Chapter 6, Linda Briskman, writing from Australia, looks at the political nature of Indigenous social work which is centrally concerned with 'decolonization', not only overcoming the worst effects of colonization but also resisting its continual onslaught in policies which deny Indigenous Peoples their human rights, including their right to lands to which they are entitled.
