Taungurung decision-making guide: AIATSIS

Taungurung decision-making guide cover

Dr Belinda Burbidge; Toni Bauman

Taungurung Land and Waters Council and AIATSIS collaboratively produced a decision-making guide for Taungurung people to use in governance.

The guide contains practical information on:

  • Compliance and legal requirements
  • Decision-making models
  • Separation of powers
  • Conflicts of interest
  • Subsidiarity
  • Cultural governance

The guide is of practical use for Taungurung Land and Waters Council in governance, assisting communication and engagement, inducting new board members, and managing disagreements about procedures and policies.

It will also be of interest to other Indigenous corporations that are working on their own decision-making structures, processes and models, particularly native title Prescribed Bodies Corporate (PBCs) and other traditional owner corporations.
