Indigenous Community Governance Project

Nation Building Project

The Indigenous Community Governance Project (ICG) was conducted through a partnership between the Centre for Aboriginal Economic Policy Research, ANU, and Reconciliation Australia.

The ICG project explored Indigenous community governance with participating Indigenous communities, regional Indigenous organisations and leaders throughout Australia between 2004 to 2008. The ICG website provides findings, reports, case studies and key messages from the research project.
