Research Ethics with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Australians
Research with, by and for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Australians presents many opportunities and challenges for researchers. Fundamental to Indigenous research is that “[a]t every stage, research with and about Indigenous peoples must be founded on a process of meaningful engagement and reciprocity between the researcher and Indigenous people” (AIATSIS, 2007: 3).
In this seminar, Professors Foley and Martin will discuss some of the key practical and ethical issues to be considered when developing and conducting research with Indigenous Australians – particularly regarding “rights, respect and recognition; negotiation, consultation, agreement and mutual understanding; participation, collaboration and partnership; [and] benefits, outcomes and giving back” (AIATSIS, 2007: 3). Practical examples of ethical challenges for Indigenous and non- Indigenous researchers in making tangible connections with Indigenous Communities will be offered.
