Electoral Education and Engagement Project (REC-IER Phase 2)

‘Remote Engagement and Coordination – Indigenous Evaluation Research (REC-IER) – Phase 2: Electoral Engagement and Education’ is funded by the Department of Local Government, Housing and Community Development, NT Government.

The Ground Up team have worked with local Indigenous research teams in three remote NT sites – Galiwin’ku, Ngukurr and Nauiyu – focusing on issues of electoral engagement and education.

Project aims:

To develop better understandings of local engagement in relation to this issue, as well as further elaborating understandings of what counts as good ways of evaluating and providing feedback on government engagement and coordination practices. The project parallels work currently being explored by an NT Government Electoral Engagement and Education Working Group, and connects with the work of NT Electoral Commission and regional DHLGCD staff.

Project objectives:

  • develop understandings of what constitutes good electoral engagement
  • develop principles and practices through which this engagement might be evaluated
  • develop and engage the research and evaluation capacities of local Aboriginal researchers and their organisations.
