Canadian period[edit]

From 1968-1980, Peter Jull worked in the Canadian Privy Council Office's Federal-Provincial Relations Office as assistant secretary to the Prime Minister's cabinet committee on constitutional and other national issues, and as adviser on the Constitution vis-à-vis northern territories and indigenous peoples. He also served as Cabinet secretary in the province of British Columbia, 1976–77, during the formation of a new provincial government's cabinet business system.[1]

Since 1980, Peter has acted as an adviser to many official and non-governmental entities, writing many reports, articles, and papers. He worked, for instance, as political and constitutional adviser to international, national, and regional Inuit organisations from 1980–87, including heading the secretariat supporting the Nunavut constitutional project, and working in the Inuit constitutional team which won significant national constitutional amendments in the 1980-83 period.[1]

Since 1987, in Australia, he has also worked as a consultant to indigenous official bodies and NGOs, and federal and state government entities. He has also continued to act as a consultant to governments and indigenous NGOs in Canada and the northern hemisphere.[1]

He joined the Australian Centre for Peace and Conflict Studies in 2004. Prior to that he was Adjunct Associate Professor and course lecturer in the School of Political Science and International Studies, University of Queensland, and earlier Senior Research Fellow at the Australian National University's North Australia Research Unit, Darwin.[1]
