The seminar will be an opportunity to present the work of the Anti-Discrimination Commission, in particular in the area of race based complaints. To question and explore what the potential barriers may be for Aboriginal Territorians in using the ADC process. Review research from another complaint body and the research into civil legal needs of Aboriginal Territorians. As well as explore available research on why getting it right matters.

Raise the potential research question what can we do, or what are the priority areas to work on to make ADC processes accessible to Aboriginal Territorians.
