The extensive consultation process (Redesign Consultation process) with Aboriginal people initiated by the Australian Federal Government in 2009 in order to discuss the provisions of the unpopular and allegedly racially discriminatory Northern Territory Emergency Response (NTER) and identify them as special measures is considered severely inadequate. It is suggested that the NTER Redesign Consultation process has not involved the affected Indigenous communities in its design and implementation and hence would only be a formal gesture rather than a genuine intention to help the affected people.
