This report reviews the existing literature about the temporary mobility of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people in remote Australia. It follows a number of other literature reviews on this topic, including Habibis et al. (2010), Memmott et al. (2004) and a comprehensive survey article by Prout (2008). While some of the same ground is covered as in those earlier contributions, the material covered here is aimed specifically at informing future research designs to increase our understanding of the temporary mobility of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, and to facilitate the modelling of temporary population flows for the purpose of improving service delivery, resource allocation and employment opportunities for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Australians.
