UAKN Prince George Protocol Development Proposal
Research Start-up Summary and Abstract:
This project is an outcome of the ongoing dialogue with and between urban Aboriginal organizations in Prince George and university-based researchers from the UNBC and UBC about the research goals and capacity needs in the urban Aboriginal community generally. A clear need has arose to delineate both processes and protocols that will assist urban Aboriginal organizations in Prince George to develop research projects and respond to research opportunities.
To address research deficits and knowledge disparities related to urban Aboriginal research is to develop the research capacity of urban Aboriginal organizations and researchers to undertake research that situates research projects within the epistemological and relational realities of urban Aboriginal communities to ensure that the knowledge is translated and shared in ways that people can understand and implement.
