The Latest Australian Constitutional Values Survey

Research output: Contribution to journalOnline ResourceProfessional


Establishing a First Nations Voice to Parliament has been an emerging focus of the push for constitutional recognition of First Nations since 2015. It emerged as a priority for reform from Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people themselves, as articulated in the Uluru Statement from the Heart in 2017. The proposed Voice has become the centre of efforts to give First Nations a permanent say in decisions affecting them, and progress meaningful, structural reform to reset the relationship with the State.

New research by CQUniversity and Griffith University as part of the Constitutional Values Survey reveals substantial public support for a First Nations Voice to parliament. This presses the case for action, despite historical political resistance to similar reforms, and possibly diminishing support from within the government. Our research shows that the politicians in this arena may be lagging behind the Australian public.
