National Indigenous Research Conference 2017

The National Indigenous Research Conference 2017 was co-convened by AIATSIS and the University of Canberra from 21–23 March 2017 at Hotel Realm, Barton ACT. The theme for the conference was 'Impact, Engagement, Transformation'.

The Conference drew together researchers, policymakers, cultural and collecting institutions, the corporate sector and Indigenous organisations and communities. The Conference examined how we can more effectively target research efforts to achieve better policy outcomes and practice with lasting impact through transformative change.

Research plays a central role in creating transformative change in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities. Questions of impact and engagement in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander research are front and centre in this change. So too is the way in which the Indigenous research effort innovates to inform policy and practice around Indigenous development.
