Serious Whitefella Stuff

How can we best close the gap between white and black Australians? In a lot of cases over the years the gap has only widened. A report released by the Federal government today will report on the latest. But how much of it is a problem with the implementation of policy?

Serious Whitefella Stuff is a new book by Professor Mark Moran, who has spent decades on the front line in various parts of the country implementing Indigenous policy. He says there is a massive disconnect between what is signed off in Canberra and what happens on the ground.

Mark also leads the Development Effectiveness research cluster at the Institute of Social Science Research, The University of Queensland. Mitch caught up with Mark to discuss the book and the issues of Indigenous policy.
