Abstract Research is as yet an underutilized opportunity for engaging Aboriginal communities in mutually beneficial relationships. Effective engagement of Aboriginal communities is critical to achieve relevance and adoption of development research. The Aboriginal Research Practitioners’ Network (ARPnet) was established as a mechanism to increase the engagement of Aboriginal communities in north Australia in research and development. ARPnet addresses some of the elements of the current critique of research in Aboriginal communities and provides engagement through much needed short term employment. This paper presents some of the experiences of the network and highlights some of the critical challenges for sustaining this model of engagement into the future.
