The PhD topic fits within a broader research agenda, namely that of analysing whether a process of democratic dialogue between Indigenous and non-Indigenous Australians can have capability-enhancing effects. The findings from the PhD project are expected to enhance the development of a process of democratic dialogue in the broader project. The successful applicant may occasionally be required to travel to participate in dialogue meetings.
