The Plight of the Kimberley: Jobs or Culture?

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterResearchpeer-review

Abstract

This case focusses on the ongoing tussle between the West Australian Government, non-governmental organisations, businesses, and indigenous groups over the future of the unique Kimberley region in the North West of Australia. Recent multilateral agreements to develop the region as a major liquid natural gas (LNG) hub suggest that the area's abundant natural and cultural wonders are under threat.
