No 19 (2016): Special monographic issue: Australia's Fundamental Challenges: Multiculturalism and Environment
In this short monographic issue, the Australian academic and law specialist Justin Dabner deals with the complications that arise in a nation which takes the model of British Common law for its judiciary, for both Indigenous people and its multicultural society. In a second article, Dabner moves into a totally different terrain, climate change, which is a subject of concern for every nation. Dabner points out that climate change, responsible environmental politics and action are, perhaps, Australia‚Äôs ‚Äúgreatest moral challenge‚ÄĚ alongside the one mentioned before.
