Congratulations to BCEC Director, Professor Alan Duncan and BCEC Research Fellow, Dr Ha Nguyen, for receiving the 2017 Article of the Year Award for their paper, Exchange rate fluctuations and immigrants’ labour market outcomes: New evidence from Australian household panel data published in the Journal of International Economics.
Associate Professor Michael Dockery also received the 2017 Project of the Year Award for his publication titled Aboriginal assets?

This report addresses the question of how effective agreements arising from native title determinations are at meeting the needs and aspirations of Aboriginal peoples who have achieved legal recognition as native title holders.
