In collaboration with Indigenous researchers and practitioners (with particular leadership from Bhiamie Williamson), the Beyond Disasters team have been engaged since 2020 in research relating to First Nations communities affected by disasters such as bushfires. This includes efforts to address the dearth of research into the unique impacts of disasters such as bushfires on Indigenous communities in Australia, and exploration of the role of healing knowledges and practices in supporting disaster recovery. This work has been conducted across a range of projects including Recovery Capitals (ReCap), the Bushfire Recovery Victoria research partnership, and the Red Cross Bushfire Recovery Program evaluation.
