Asserting the Doctrine of Discovery in Australia
This chapter explores the continual adoption of the principles of Discovery into contemporary Australian law. It looks at the overturning of the terra nullius element in the Mabo case in 1992 but also looks at how the Doctrine of Discovery still leaves a legacy in Australian law whereby the rights of indigenous peoples remain unprotected.
