Tangible benefits

We are committed to undertaking research for the benefit of Australia’s Indigenous population and our experience includes:

  • Case study research in Queensland and Western Australia to better understand the experiences of Indigenous people with regards to housing stress and overcrowding
  • Secondary analysis of longitudinal datasets to identify the impact of parental separation on health and wellbeing for Indigenous children and their families
  • Semi-structured interviews with Indigenous persons and social housing providers to inform service integration strategies to address issues of homelessness in Indigenous communities

ISSR also has strong connections with The University of Queensland’s Aboriginal Environments Research Centre (AERC), which provides research and teaching services in relation to the culture, environment and architecture of Australian Indigenous communities.
