There is a growing similarity in the challenges facing Indigenous peoples worldwide. IIPJ is a dedicated peer-reviewed forum for discussion of these challenges. This Journal aims to expose the policy issues related to these concerns by encouraging and givingexpression to the very best research, which can then be used as an evidence base to guide policy making. We are also concerned that research and policy be developed in an ethical manner by taking into direct consideration needs and concerns of the peoples themselves.
