Identifying how the principles of self-determination could be applied to create effective alcohol policy for First Nations Australians: Synthesising the lessons from the development of general public policy
This narrative review aimed to examine processes around how Indigenous Peoples were included in alcohol policy development. It found there is no single model for the integration of self-determination into policy. However, the nature of participation is key in ensuring Indigenous Peoples’ self-determination is recognised. While all papers reviewed reported Indigenous Peoples being included in processes, there was little evidence of self-determination.
