Book Launch: Reflections on the Voice

Join us to celebrate the launch of Andrew Gunstone’s Reflections on the Voice: During and After the Campaign.

Professor Andrew Gunstone is a leading authority in reconciliation. He is Associate Deputy Vice-Chancellor Reconciliation and Professor Indigenous Studies at Federation University, where he leads the National Centre for Reconciliation, Truth, and Justice. He is also Co-Chair of Reconciliation Victoria, Foundation Editor of the Journal of Australian Indigenous Issues, and sits on several national and regional reconciliation committees. He regularly provides advice on reconciliation to corporates, industry, community, governments, and academia.

Professor Gunstone’s new book ‘Reflections on the Voice – during and after the campaign’ has just been published. This is the first book to explore the Referendum and its aftermath, and the implications for our ongoing national journey of reconciliation. The book, written for a general audience, explores key areas, such as: substantive reconciliation, racism, Indigenous rights, ‘equality’, truth-telling, community engagements, international agreements, such as UNDRIP, allyship, and recommitting to Voice, Treaty, and Truth.

Copies of Professor Gunstone’s new book are for sale at this event for just $20, a savings of over 40% off the normal retail price. All proceeds go towards funding an Indigenous PhD scholarship on truth-telling. This is a Reconciliation WA event.
