TSRG Research Protocols

TSRG is committed to continually developing the ethical quality of our work.

We respect the values enshrined in key protocols, including, as exemplars, the AIATSIS Code of Ethics for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Research, 2020 and the Inuit-specific methodological approach known as Aajiiqatigiingniq, advocated by the Aqqiumavvik Society of Arviat, Nunavut.
We aim for our work to be:
a)    consultative and specific to the communities of interest impacted
b)    responsive to local community and Indigenous priorities
c)    generated with the involvement of Indigenous and/or  community team members as investigators.

“Our Elders and Knowledge Holders have always put a great emphasis into how things are done. This reinforces the idea that it is our own tools, strategies, values and processes and intellect that are going to build our new house.”
