Call for Papers

In this complex and changing world, public policy must more than ever be based on research that exposes the realities that face Aboriginal Peoples in Canada. At the same time, the outcomes of policy must also be explored and evaluated to ensure that there has been a positive and/or desired impact. The Aboriginal Policy Research Conference will engage Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal researchers and policy makers in the pursuit of better, more appropriate research, evidence-based policy, and policy outcome assessment. The last conference had an unprecedented 1200 delegates.

Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal graduate students are invited to submit a draft paper by September 30, 2008. Please include one page explaining the paper’s policy relevance. For those selected, a completed paper will be due by December 19, 2008. The best submissions will be invited to present at the APRC. Financial support will be available to those whose paper is selected (information on request). The top six papers will receive $2000 scholarships.

Send submissions to:
Jerry P. White
Professor and Senior Advisor to the Provost
C/O Julie Peters
Department of Sociology
University of Western Ontario
London, Ontario, Canada, N6A 5C2
* E-mail submissions are preferred.
