Abstract

Based on a paper presented at the Australasian Law Teachers Association Annual Conference, Victoria University of Wellington, Wellington, New Zealand, 4-7 July 1999 - stimulating debate amongst legal academics on the critique raised by indigenous Australians of 'pseudo-white experts' of western-oriented research methods and of research done 'about them' - little questioning or discussion within the literature by Australian academics of the ethics process in research or examination of ethics of research on indigenous issues - only a small number of those undertaking research into indigenous people are themselves indigenous Australians - the indigenous critique remains misunderstood by or unknown to many members of the legal academy.
