Ethics in overseas fieldwork

The Researchers in Development Network (RiDN) is hosting a seminar on 13 July 2011 for those conducting, or who have completed, research fieldwork overseas in low to middle income countries.

The seminar will focus on general ethical issues which can arise when conducting fieldwork overseas and will also give guidance on completing the University's ethical approval form.  It is designed to help researchers think through all the ethical elements of their research, its sensitivity, their own experience, and the support needed by the researcher and their subjects, and then to provide advice on how to put those issues into writing, either for the approval form or in the final research report.

The seminar is aimed at PhD researchers, but others are welcome too.  There will be some pre-seminar work to help you get the most from the seminar, but it is not mandatory.

The seminar will be run by Jennifer Parr from the Nuffield Centre for International Health and Development.  Read more about Jennifer Parr.

The seminar will to take place:

On:  Wednesday 13 July

At:   4.00 - 5.30pm

In:   Room B.10, Parkinson Building SR (basement of the Parkinson Building)

Places are limited, so please email the RiDN team to request a place.
