Social Justice Commissioner welcomes feedback on Native Title Report

1 May 2008

The Human Rights and Equal Opportunity Commission (HREOC) would like your feedback on the 2007 Native Title Report by 23 May 2008.

The online survey can be found at
http://www.humanrights.gov.au/social_justice/ntr07_feedback.html.

Every year, the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Social Justice Commissioner submits a native title report to the Attorney-General.

The Commissioner is required by law to report on the operation of the native title system and its effect on the exercise and enjoyment of human rights by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.

The Commissioner and the Human Rights and Equal Opportunity Commission are committed to improving the native title report to ensure it is as useful and effective as possible, but need your help in making sure this is the case. To that end, we are seeking your feedback on the Native Title Report 2007.

The Commissioner and HREOC would appreciate it if you, or a colleague in your organisation, can take a few minutes to complete it by 23 May 2008. All responses will be confidential.

If you have any questions about the survey or the native title report, please contact Cecelia Burgman in the Native Title Unit on (02) 9284 9853, or by email at ntreport@humanrights.gov.au.
