107 – Shireen Morris

Shireen Morris is the Constitutional Reform Advisor at Noel Pearson’s Cape York Institute.

In the wake of the 50th anniversary of the 1967 Referendum and the Uluru Statement From The Heart, Shireen runs me through the history of constitutional recognition, what it means and how it might work moving forward. We cover symbolism, the political reaction to the Statement, what an Aboriginal Voice might look like, treaty and the tension between Indigenous land rights and environmental considerations.

I learnt a whole lot here because Shireen is fully heaps smart.
