This report, released annually by the HREOC through the Office of the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Social Justice Commissioner, reports on the operation of the Native Title Act 1993 and its effect on ‘the exercise and enjoyment of human rights of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples’.

This year’s native title report discusses recent amendments to Native Title law and policy in Australia and how these changes affect the land rights of Indigenous Australians. Four native title cases which document the issues arising from the interpretation of the Native Title Act by the common law are discussed. The report results in 25 recommendations.
