In addition to examining existing tools in research management, the seminar discussed approaches that should be adopted to respect Aboriginal communities and entities’ aspirations with regard to research involving them. This seminar was also aimed at further studying the notion of data “ownership” and the implications of respecting this research principle that remains misunderstood and misconstrued and that may lead to unequal and strained relations between Aboriginal peoples and researchers. Another objective was to present inspiring examples and case studies and their challenges as well as the analysis, approval, involvement and management procedures preferred by Aboriginal peoples in the field of research.

Whom is the Seminar Intended for?

This seminar was intended for members of Aboriginal communities and organisations having a special interest in research practices involving them. It was also intended for students, professors, researchers, managers and administrators of university, government or civil society organisations interested or involved in research with Aboriginal peoples.


The program is available at the « Program » tab of the 3rd Seminar on Ethical Conduct for Research Involving Aboriginal Peoples: Concrete Examples for Decolonising Research. We invite you to regularly visit our website for more information on the seminar.

On behalf of the Organizing Committee, thank you for your presence.
