Noel Pearson and Indigenous policy on Cape York

In The Conversation (20.8.14) Marcus Waters discusses Noel Pearson’s influence on Indigenous policy on Cape York.  Rather than end reliance on government funding, the Cape York Welfare Reform Program has received more funding from federal and state government agencies than any other trial program per population base in the history of Aboriginal funding. A grant of A$133 million for the initial four-year period was jointly funded by the federal and Queensland governments.
