About the collaboration

The Indigenous Settler Relations Collaboration (ISRC) acknowledge the Wurundjeri and Boonwurrung Peoples of the Kulin Nation as the traditional owners of the land on which the University stands and respectfully recognise Elders past and present.

About the collaboration

The ISRC is a multi-disciplinary research unit devoted to exploring the challenges that lie at the heart of relations between Indigenous and settler Australians. In the wake of government rejection of the Uluru Statement from the Heart (270kb pdf), the ISRC looks to expand public and official understanding of these challenges, and explore what might inform, shape and give life to more just relations between Indigenous and non-Indigenous peoples.

While the ISRC looks to explore all angles and perspectives on Indigenous Settler Relations, we are currently guided by three research priorities:

  • Indigenous Futures
  • Treaty
  • Economic Sovereignty

If you are interested in finding out more, making use of our research services, or proposing a partnership project with us, please email your enquiry to i-src@unimelb.edu.au
