AIATSIS and AIGI survey of gaps and challenges in Indigenous governance research and practical tools : draft summary

In June and July 2014 the Australian Institute of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Studies (AIATSIS) and the Australian Indigenous Governance Institute (AIGI) conducted a survey into gaps in Indigenous governance research and practical tools.

The survey, entitled A short survey: mapping Indigenous governance research and resources, was distributed across a broad network of organisations, institutions and individuals working in the field of Indigenous governance (including select international organisations) in preparation for the Indigenous Governance Development Forum: Mapping Current and Future Research and Resource Needs held on 29–30 July 2014 at AIATSIS in Canberra. 38 survey responses were received. 

This document presents a draft summary of responses to a number of the survey questions. Specific research initiatives and practical tools identified through the survey have been compiled into a preliminary list which will be incorporated into this document when it’s finalised.
