Abstract: The final report of the Joint Select Committee on Constitutional Recognition for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples (JSC), [1] released on 25 June 2015, contributes to refining the model that will eventually be put at a referendum. Reflecting the unanimous views of its members, the JSC's report represents a significant multi-party political consensus. While ultimately leaving a choice still to be made between three models, the JSC has advanced the national discussion through its key conclusion that there must be constitutional protection against adverse legislative discrimination for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. Its report also brings us closer to a model that balances principle and pragmatism.
