Jacquie Vorauer




Dr. Jacquie Vorauer‘s research centres on “metaperceptions,” that is, people’s beliefs about how they are viewed by others. In particular, she examines communication breakdowns that pose obstacles to positive relationships between individuals and groups. Her long-term goal is to identify ways in which such obstacles can be overcome. Vorauer applied her expertise to First Nations water rights research co-ordinated by the Centre for Human Rights Research.
