About this Unit
This unit focuses on community management in Australian Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities and the social and economic factors that influence and frame community management practices. At the macro level, it examines the effects of neo-liberal (economic rationalist) reforms in the public and community sectors; and the impact of developments such as managerialism and ‘third way’ approaches on community management practices. The unit has a specific focus on management practices and issues facing organisations operating in Indigenous communities. It explores the tensions and pressures faced by Indigenous organisations and strategies for developing sustainable management practices.
