As a doctoral student exploring the role of Inuit Knowledge in Nunavut fisheries co-management and its implications for the design of an alternative, Inuit-centered model of fisheries governance, FishWIKS team member Mirjam Held wanted to follow decolonising research principles and collaborate with Inuit research partners in both the planning and the execution of her research.

In her paper just published in the International Journal of Qualitative Methods, Mirjam reflects on the challenges she faced and the lessons she learned, trying to put decolonising principles into practise.
