Research in and with developing countries
Monday, 17 May, 2021 | 14:00 - Sunday, 17 October, 2021 | 16:00
This session will cover the full suite of key considerations academic researchers need to take into account when carrying out research in, or in collaboration with partners, in developing countries.
Starting with the guidance produced by multilateral bodies such as the UN and World Bank, the session will then review other international standards (e.g. ISO 20252) and principles (e.g. Global Research Business Network, British Educational Research Association (BERA), Market Research Society (MRS)
It will discuss key pervasive themes in these standards such as ethics, gender awareness, informed consent and culture in a LDC context. It will cover the legal and regulatory context in relation to rights to conduct research elsewhere including under international trade rules, visa considerations for field research, local data protection requirements affecting the collection, use and storage of data, local publication and copyright.
Finally it will conclude with issues around research partnerships, collaboration and technology transfer.
