Friday June 15th. Arts Tower, Room 13.17 | Time: 9:30 – 14:15
The workshop, sponsored by the University Research Ethics Committee (UREC), aimed to explore the ethics of interdisciplinary research with refugee communities, in the context of displacement in refugee camps and host communities. Through a series of presentations from established and early career researchers in the area, delegates were able to discuss the different challenges, approaches and best reflexive practices of interdisciplinary research with refugee communities. A particular focus throughout was on bringing together disciplines for which the issues are challenging but broadly familiar (principally within the Social Sciences), with those such as Science and Engineering which have been less used to engaging with the ethics of working with vulnerable groups, but now need to in the context of interdisciplinarity and impact, and funding streams which support this (such as the GCRF).
