Visiting Scholar Program

In 2022, the Initiative for Peacebuilding hosted Indigenous Visiting Scholar in Residence, Dr Helen Bishop. Helen is a Koongurrukun woman of the Northern Territory whose work focuses on dispute resolution, procedural fairness, cooperative decision making and peacebuilding. Helen met with staff from the School of Social and Political Sciences, gave talks and focused on her writing about improving the Northern Territory’s Aboriginal Justice agreement.This was also an opportunity to further an exciting research proposal exploring Australian Indigenous approaches to peacebuilding.
