Abstract The Commonwealth's 'needs-based' approach to welfare reform: first, by analyzing the progressive application and justification for income management, and the new legal framework for administering social welfare with reference to Australia's international law obligations; and, secondly, by critically examining Australia's legal obligations relating to the proscription of racial discrimination and whether income management is now consistent with those obligations is discussed. Serious doubts exist as to whether the 2010 amendments are consistent with non-discrimination principles.
