Our approach to ethics

We value honesty, integrity and ethical practice. We always take an ethical approach, in which we only do evaluation:

  • if the evaluation’s purpose is to assess or improve policy or service provision in a way that will benefit Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people
  • for reasons agreed to by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people
  • if it does not hurt or shame Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people
  • if all participants are afforded appropriate protections and respect
  • if there is a pathway to address concerns.[1]Orr M, Kenny P, Gorey IN, Dixon T, Mir A, Cox E, Wilson J. (2009). Aboriginal Knowledge and Intellectual Property Protocol: Community Guide. 2nd Edition. Ninti One Limited, Alice Springs.[2]National Health and Medical Research Council (2014). Ethical considerations in quality assurance and evaluation activities. Canberra: NHMRC, p. 2

When carrying out research and evaluation, where appropriate we adhere to:

We seek approval from a Human Research Ethics Committee where appropriate, and from the Aboriginal Health & Medical Research Council where appropriate.
