Literature review of Aboriginal affairs policies & case study of OCHRE

The McKell Institute were commissioned to conduct a process evaluation of OCHRE, the major policy framework guiding Aboriginal affairs policy in the state.  Findings suggest that success requires attention to timeframes, workforce, leadership, maintaining buy-in over time, accountability, and working within Aboriginal communities.

The case study is complemented by a literature review assessing the approach used in government policy development in Aboriginal affairs in NSW over the last 30-40 years.
