Summary

Over the past two decades, major advances have occurred in Australian research and policy on LGBTI populations. These advances have included greater awareness of how policy and research design can include and acknowledge distinctions between the multiple, intersecting dimensions of gender, body, sexuality, and relationship experiences. However, further improvements are needed. This presentation will provide an overview of recent Australian and international advances in research methodology and design and their policy applications. We will discuss the Alliance’s ongoing national work to improve research ethics and standards, emerging insights on evidence-based research design and policy development, and key opportunities for further improvement. This session will also provide recommendations for best practice in Australian research and policy contexts.
