Community-based participatory research (CBPR) is an increasingly popular approach. Whilst many of the ethical challenges are common to social research generally (informed consent, anonymity, issues of ownership of data and findings), there are many distinctive ethical challenges when communities and universities work together on research projects. This conference aims to bring together community partners, third sector and government researchers, academics, university research administrators and researcher funders to share experiences and ways of tackling ethical challenges in CBPR – including the use and abuse of power, co-authorship of publications, ownership of findings and institutional ethical review processes.
A newly developed guide, Community-based Participatory Research: A Guide to Ethical Principles and Practice, and a set of case materials and exercises will also be introduced at the conference. These materials were produced by a group of community partners and academics, coordinated by Durham University’s Centre for Social Justice and Community Action, published by National Coordinating Centre for Public Engagement (NCCPE) and funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council under the Connected Communities programme. There will be a range of workshops offering an opportunity to share and learn about ethical issues and challenges in CBPR from the perspective community partners and academics working in the following areas:
- Museum and Heritage
- Science and Engineering
- Arts and Culture
- Social Justice
