Event description

Description

In this talk, Professor Duthu will describe recent changes in US federal law that affirms the authority of American Indian tribal governments to prosecute any offender, including non-Native people, for a limited class of sexual crimes occurring on tribal lands. The federal laws that accomplish this are not without some controversy and may even be susceptible to constitutional challenge.

Professor Duthu will provide a brief overview of the problem of sexual violence in “Indian Country” and discuss the merits and shortcomings of this legal response.

Venue: Lismore Y2.11. with video link between Gold Coast A2.14 and Coffs Harbour A1.09.
