Indigenous Home Ownership on Communal Land Titles

Indigenous home ownership has been a growing poloicy issue on governmental agendas, since at least 2001 when the Commonwealth, State and Territory Housing Ministers adopted their policy ‘Building a Better Future: Indigenous Housing to 2010’. The research will inform Indigenous home ownership policies that are either long-standing, have been freshly implemented or are being currently planned. Of critical significance is the adequacy of ‘fit’ between policy assumptions and client constructs of what constitutes desired home ownership.
