This online platform maps in detail how decisions of Parliaments and Governments dispossessed and disempowered First Nations people, and where they have sought to protect and provide reparation.

Towards Truth is a partnership between the Indigenous Law Centre and the Public Interest Advocacy Centre. The project researches the vast body of laws and policies that have impacted people since 1788, broken down into four main themes - Country, Kinship, Law and Culture, and People. 

The project compiles:

  • laws and policies that have impacted First Nations people since 1788
  • parliamentary debates that show what the Parliament intended when those laws were passed
  • articles and reports that discuss and analyse how these laws and policies operated in practice, and 
  • case studies that show their practical effects. 

The project currently focuses on NSW, with plans to expand to other jurisdictions.
