To mark the 20th anniversary of the Guidelines for Ethical Research in Australian Indigenous Studies (GERAIS), the Australian Institute of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Studies (AIATSIS) undertook a review of the Guidelines, led by the AIATSIS Research Ethics Committee, Research Advisory Committee and Council. In 2019 AIATSIS released the revised guidelines for public consultation. The consultation draft included reframing the guidelines into a ‘Code of Ethics’ or ‘Code of Ethical and Responsible Conduct’, and providing an accompanying Guide to Applying the Code.
The University of Western Australia are pleased to advise that the revised guidelines are now available – AIATSIS Code of Ethics for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Research (AIATSIS Code of Ethics) in conjunction with A guide to applying the AIATSIS Code of Ethics for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Research. These documents will supersede and replace the Guidelines for Ethical Research in Australian Indigenous Studies 2012 (GERAIS).
