    Project Details

    Description

    This Henderson Foundation Fellowship provided the intellectual space to creatively pursue the importance of social and economic interactions in Indigenous employment and poverty. The resulting research was published and developed in research monographs and leading scholarly journals (e.g. Economica). One duty of a Henderson Research Fellow was to encourage and foster young researchers to engage in social economic analysis: most notably Matthew Gray (Deputy Director of Research at Australian Institute of Family Studies), Siobhan McDonnell (Policy Research Officer, Central Lands Council), and Nicholas Biddle (Doctoral candidate, the ANU).
