As well as developing an ethical philosophy in the way that we approach research, the Lowitja Institute supports and uphold ethical guidelines and frameworks that have been developed for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander research.

We also develop resources to support ethical research, such as EthicsHub. This online resource provides guidance – for researchers, the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community research participants, community organisations, students and supervisors, and ethics committees – around the ethics of undertaking research into Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health and wellbeing.
