Our work with Indonesian DPOs

PWDA, as part of DPO Australia, is working with DPOs from Indonesia as part of our community-led research.

We hosted a workshop in November 2018 featuring different example of community driven research that Australian DPOs and academic partners have been involved with.

The workshop showcased practical research methodologies:

  • Accessible, inclusive, relevant and intersectional field work/data collection
  • How to manage the data you collect, ethics and confidentiality
  • How to evaluate and use your research

DPOs colleagues had the opportunity to present some of their current advocacy/research priorities, look at the best way to approach these priorities in the Indonesian context, and how DPOs can gather and use evidence to support their work.
