Decolonsing Indigenous child welfare reflects on how comparative and international understandings of Indigenous childrens rights, with particular reference to the right to self- determination, have and could further influence child welfare frameworks in Australia and comparatively in Canada, the USA and New Zealand. Indigenous peoples have responded both nationally and internationally with claims to participate in and exercise jurisdiction over their childrens welfare and well- being. Decolonising Indigenous child welfare considers whether pluralized and inclusive, compared to universal and standard setting, conceptualizations of human rights can be part of a process for transforming political relationships in a manner which responds to Indigenous childrens needs in more just and effective ways.
