Develop inclusive and participatory policymaking processes for NGOs, government agencies and businesses working with Indigenous people.

  • Degree specialisation designed to provide policymakers with specific expertise relating to Indigenous development
  • Learn from experts at ANU’s Centre for Aboriginal Economic Policy Research (CAEPR), Australia’s leading centre on Indigenous economic and social policy issues
  • Understand Indigenous views and approaches to development

If you’re ready to take a leading role in improving Indigenous policymaking processes for an NGO, government agency or business enterprise, this degree specialisation is for you. Indigenous policy presents unique challenges that demand a specialist skillset to achieve effective solutions.

By engaging with and learning from experts, including staff from CAEPR, Australia’s leading centre on Indigenous economic and social policy issues, you will gain relevant and instrumental insights into Indigenous and community perspectives – and their impact on development activities.

Partnered with this understanding, you will acquire the ability to undertake social assessments and integrate participatory practices into policymaking processes. These skills will equip you to take on a leadership role in the implementation, monitoring and evaluation of policy for NGOs, government agencies and businesses that engage with Indigenous people.
