Belinda Beattie’s interest in public policy has seen her work in rural and regional health as well as research in this exciting field of study. Of recent, Belinda is interested in the relationship between the long Victorian and Federation period, new liberalism, post colonialism, and nativism. Furthermore, Belinda is interested in international Indigenous matters like business, legislation and healthcare. Collectively, Belinda is interested in political and public policy anthropology. Beyond this, Belinda finds Australian Indigenous politics and public policy to be a fascinating area of study along with Australia’s early federal politicians ‘quirks, politics and social lives’ - especially for young readers.
