Hendrix Publishes International Collaboration

Associate Professor of Political Science Burke Hendrix has co-written a paper that was recently published in the Australian Journal of Public Administration.

In the summer of 2016, departmental funding allowed Associate Professor Burke Hendrix to travel to Australia for a month-long research trip, which resulted in a recently-published article on Australian public policy.  Hendrix’s research focuses on Indigenous peoples and their relationships with the countries now claiming authority over them.  In the United States and Canada, American Indian tribes/First Nations have many recognized political rights.  In Australia, the rights of Aboriginal communities are much less clearly defined, and Australian national policy remains in a profound state of flux.  Hendrix spent time in Australia’s Northern Territory in the towns of Darwin, Nhulunbuy, and Alice Springs before traveling to Canberra, Australia’s national capital, where he was hosted by the Centre for Aboriginal Economic Policy Research at Australian National University.  He subsequently traveled to Australia in 2018 for follow up research.  These research trips led to an international collaboration with scholars from Australia, the United States, and Canada.

Hendrix’s co-authored paper, “Building Capacity in Indigenous Governance: Comparing the Australian and American Experiences,” recently appeared in the Australian Journal of Public Administration, which is the journal of record for public administration matters in Australia.

The paper was co-authored with Danielle Delaney (Queen’s University – Canada), Richard C. Witmer (Creighton University – Nebraska), Will Sanders and Elizabeth Ganter (Australian National University), and Mark Moran (University of Queensland).
