The Royal Commissionís Research Program has been designed to address key issues outlined in its Terms of Reference. The goals of the Research Program are:
The key task of the research program is to draw together existing knowledge, and to fill critical gaps in research. The Commissionís own staff will be able to undertake some of these tasks; others are being undertaken by government bodies in co-operation with the Commission. The bulk of the Research Program, however, will be carried out by independent experts, most of whom will be based at Memorial University and other universities across Canada. In developing the Research Program and identifying potential researchers, the Commission will consult with a Research Advisory Roundtable, drawn mainly from personnel at Memorial University.
Research done specifically for the Commission will: be focused on key issues; be policy-oriented; meet professional standards of quality; be inclusive of the social diversity of Newfoundland and Labrador; and be subjected to a peer review process.
