OAPA is a partnership in Indigenous research and a crossroads of expertise that integrates traditional Indigenous, experiential and scientific knowledge, combining CONCERT and the co-production of knowledge with the aim of transforming and EMPOWERING Indigenous public administrations and the communities they serve. The OAPA aims to respond effectively and sustainably to the need to adapt and redefine knowledge and practices in public administration and public policy in an indigenous context, so that they can become levers of autonomy for indigenous communities and all the individuals (youth, women, elders, etc.) who make them up. It also aims to develop, in consultation with Indigenous peoples, a conception of public policy and public administration that is respectful of their cultures and knowledge. It also seeks to reconcile non-indigenous and indigenous conceptions within renewed practices that benefit communities through action research and the practice of a collaborative and concerted approach in an indigenous context.
