|Title:||Institutional vehicles for place-shaping in remote Australia||Contributor(s):||Blackwell, Boyd (author) ; Dollery, Brian E (author); Grant, Bligh (author)||Publication Date:||2015||DOI:||10.1080/13562576.2015.1014227||Handle Link:||https://hdl.handle.net/1959.11/17570||Abstract:||Some communities in remote Australia represent the most impoverished people in the country, with the problem especially acute amongst Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders. Effective remedial intervention is often undermined by the absence of democratically elected, local government institutions. Place-shaping as a developmental process enables local people to become agents of change, and thereby self-determine and shape their places for the future. This paper considers the different institutional structures which could underpin place-shaping in remote settlements. Drawing on a range of governance structures, an emphasis on less traditional entities and polity-forming bodies may better serve the interests of remote people.||Publication Type:||Journal Article||Source of Publication:||Space and Polity, 19(2), p. 150-169||Publisher:||Routledge||Place of Publication:||United Kingdom||ISSN:||1470-1235
