Abstract: “Housing for Aboriginal families became a controversial issue in Western Australia during the 1990s as a result of an increasing number of evictions of those living in state housing properties. This article examines the social, legal and political circumstances surrounding these evictions. It looks at a range of issues about the nature of institutional discrimination and the ambiguity between direct and indirect discrimination. It also examines the capacity of the legalistic processes of the Human Rights and Equal Opportunity Commission to deal with these issues.”
