In March 2018, Inuit Tapiriit Kanatami (ITK) released the National Inuit Strategy on Research (NISR). The NISR envisions research that empowers us to meet the needs and priorities of our families and communities. We see achieving self-determination in research as the means for ensuring that research governance bodies, policies, and practices are consistent with this vision. The NISR Implementation Plan, released in August 2018, provides a roadmap to accomplish this. The roundtable will highlight Inuit-led, Inuit-driven and Inuit self-determined research that are examples of the NISR in action. Short presentations will articulate some of the recent Inuit-specific experiences, interests, and emerging processes related to Inuit Nunangat research and policy. These short presentations will be followed by a roundtable discussion. The goal of this roundtable is to bring together a diversity of voices to learn more about Inuit perspectives and processes related to research, take part in a dialogue about Inuit Nunangat research, and providing an opportunity for conference participants to better understand each other’s role in research.
