The CRCF network includes Indigenous governance leaders, researchers and practitioners from Canada, Australia, New Zealand and the United States of America (CANZUS).


CRCF holds symposiums to share international perspectives of Indigenous self-governance and development. These events provide an opportunity to explore innovative and productive governance practices and set a shared research agenda.


AIGI collaboratively hosts the CRCF network and symposiums with:


  • The Centre for Aboriginal Economic Policy Research (CAEPR) at the Australian National University, Canberra, Australia
  • Native Nations Institute for Leadership, Management and Policy at the University of Arizona, Tucson, USA.


We work collaboratively and in partnership with colleagues from across the CANZUS network, including:


  • Maori and Indigenous Governance Centre, University of Waikato, New Zealand
  • Canadian Gitxsan leaders.


Through CRCF, AIGI has been involved in developing and publishing literature on emerging themes of Indigenous governance – including:


  • Developing Governance and Governing Development: International Case Studies of Indigenous Futures, August 2021, published by Rowman & Littlefield.
