摘要: 2008年2月13日,澳大利亚总理陆克文以政府和议会的名义向土著居民尤其是“被偷的一代”表示了正式道歉。该道歉是在各主要党派形成共识的基础上做出的,因而它对日后澳土著政策的制定与落实必将产生积极影响。陆克文的政治道歉不仅得到了澳大利亚主流社会的支持,亦被土著社会所基本接受,这为种族和解进程既营造了良好的氛围,又提供了必要动力。然而,陆克文的政治道歉所带来的诸多挑战又意味着种族和解之路并非坦途。

Abstract: On 13 February 2008, Prime Minister Kevin Rudd expressed a formal apology to aboriginal people, particularly the Stolen Generations, in the honor of his government and the Commonwealth Parliament. This apology was made on the basis of the common sense among main parties, which then put an active role in the formation and implement of future aboriginal policies in Australia. Kevin Rudd’s political apology not only got much support from the dominant society, but also was basically accepted by aboriginal communities, which have created a good atmosphere and a necessary force to racial reconciliation. Yet, many challenges from Kevin Rudd’s political apology have suggested that the road to racial reconciliation will not be smooth
