This event comprises a two day workshop exploring and developing best practice for research ethics when working in the global south. Core research ethics training is primarily focused upon expected conditions and challenges of conducting research in the minority Global North. As a result, much training fails to consider the added ethical challenges and complexities encountered when designing and conducting research in the global south. The need to address this challenge is particularly timely given the growing emphasis on the internationalisation and decolonisation of the discipline, increasing popular and political attention to the ethical conduct of development researchers and charities, as well as the growing role of the Global Challenges Research Fund in framing HE research.
Through a partnership between the Department of Geography (University of Sheffield), the Sheffield Institute for International Development (SIID), and the Sheffield Methods Institute (SMI), with funding from SIID and the British International Studies Association (BISA) this two-day workshop will deliver a series of activities aimed at developing a set of resources to address concerns of conducting research in the global south. While these resources will be heavily drawn from and orientated towards geographers, we will draw upon expertise from public health, political science, anthropology and other social science disciplines to generate inter-disciplinary learning and best practice.
