‘The Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Child Placement Principle was developed in recognition of the devastating effects of the forced separation of Indigenous children from their families, communities and culture. The purpose of this paper is to explore the contemporary understanding of the Principle, and review the multiple and complex barriers at the policy and practice levels which are impeding its implementation. Promising approaches that might address these barriers are also examined.’
