Short Abstract:

This panel explores opportunities to support Indigenous and non-Indigenous researchers planning research collaborations to think about their methods, assumptions, and behaviour.

Long Abstract

All research questions and methodologies are grounded in the specificities of people's world views, and research as an activity occurs in a set of historical, political, and social contexts. But some world views, methodologies and methods are accorded more legitimacy and privileged over others. International research initiatives that seek to address global challenges may reproduce colonial approaches to knowledge production and use, ignoring local relations and context, and with accompanying power imbalances. Developing equitable Indigenous and non-Indigenous research partnerships means challenging perceptions of the relationship between Indigenous and non-Indigenous knowledges, and what counts as knowledge and appropriate research practice.

In this panel we welcome contributions from those who explore opportunities of just development futures, and who offer examples of progressive and equitable engagement of Indigenous and non-Indigenous research partnerships. Issues covered may include:

- Stepping outside comfort zones;

- Continuing impact of colonialism on research;

- Dangers and risks in research partnerships;

- Indigenous researchers' experience of partnerships;

- What methods and approaches work and what doesn't; and

- What equitable collaborations look like in practice.

We welcome both empirical and theoretical contributions, in different styles (video, slides with audio, podcast/audio only and text only) and at various stages of development.
