Victoria: Legislation
To remove and protect: laws that changed Aboriginal lives
Australian Institute of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Studies, 2008

This section of the AIATSIS website is a part of the online exhibition, 'To remove and protect: laws that changed Aboriginal lives'. It contains digitised excerpts of legislation from Victoria and other states and territories in Victoria that are relevant to the removal of Indigenous children from their families. Many of these laws are not specifically in relation to Aboriginal children, and are thus relevant to child welfare in Victoria for non-Indigenous children as well.
