Cross-Cultural Research Ethics

Date: 4 March 2014Time: 1:00 PM

Finishes: 4 March 2014Time: 5:00 PM

Venue: Vernon SquareRoom: V211

Type of Event: Workshop

SOAS will hold a multidisciplinary training workshop on cross-cultural research over two sessions. These will be open to all SOAS staff and research students as well as our partners in the Bloomsbury Doctoral Training Centre. This is session 1. Session 2 is here.

All year 1 SOAS PhDs and supervisors of PhD students are very strongly advised to attend these sessions. Beginning this year, 2014, all MPhil/PhD upgrades will involve a compulsory and comprehensive ethics questionnaire which includes security and risk assessment.

This workshop takes up the on-going challenge of how we can reflect upon and improve the ethical adequacy of our research practice in cross-cultural contexts.  Drawing upon multidisciplinary expertise across SOAS and invited participants, we will offer a series of related activities including panel discussions and breakout group sessions on grounded case-studies and how to work within the standard codes of research ethics.  The session will be practically organized around the various stages of a research project from planning and design, navigating through the procedures of ethics review panels, conducting research, writing up and publication.  The session is aimed at encouraging a continuous interrogation and development of ethical best practice within our research communities.
