Policy & Advocacy

Through our policy and advocacy work, we have contributed to a range of policy debates in Australia and internationally about topics such as constitutional recognition, governance, justice, mental health, data sovereignty, and research priorities in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health and wellbeing.

We’ve listed our public policy submissions and position statements below, and you can find our reports and policy briefs through our resources page.
