The Institute contributes to inclusive social change through conducting research and supporting social change initiatives, teaching and training and outreach.
We support individuals, organisations and networks that are involved in social change particularly but not exclusively in Indigenous Australia and the Pacific.
We support our partners through one or more of: action research; monitoring, evaluation and learning; research design and management; thinking and working politically, adaptive programming; coalition building, and partnership brokering.
