Event Details

Exploring Global Indigenous Insights on Australia's Voice Referendum and its Future Implications

Join us on 11 October for a thought-provoking event hosted by the University of Tasmania's College of Arts, Law, and Education, in collaboration with the School of Social Sciences. Against the backdrop of Australia's upcoming referendum on The Voice this event will offer a unique international perspective on questions of sovereignty and representation.

Through the lens of Indigenous Data Sovereignty and guided by esteemed global Indigenous thought leaders, we will delve into the potential ramifications of adopting or rejecting The Voice. With heated debates and polarising arguments here in Australia, the event aims to offer a chance for contemplation and insight guided by expert international perspectives.

By engaging leading Indigenous experts from around the world, we seek to explore how Australia's stance on The Voice could shape how we think about data, sovereignty and representation over the years ahead. We will reflect on the possibilities, opportunities, and challenges that lie ahead, and consider how other societies are grappling with the benefits that better technology and new information systems can offer.

Don't miss this exceptional opportunity to gain fresh insights and gain a broader understanding of the potential consequences as we examine the global context of Indigenous governance and evolving approaches to Indigenous Data Sovereignty.
