Free, donation welcome

Indigenous research ethics are a hot topic, with many non-indigenous researchers criticised for undertaking or leading research in and on indigenous communities. Indigenous researchers and communities are often compromised by the commissioning and ‘ownership’ of research. Research funding and approaches to managing ethics predominately rest with mainstream institutions.

This webinar welcomes back Dr Juan Tauri along with Dr Antje Deckert, both Senior Lecturers at Auckland University of Technology, who will provide insight into the perspectives of Indigenous Research Ethics and how we as funders, community organisations and researchers, can be more mindful of the tensions and power of research.

They will discuss the need to ensure that research involving Indigenous peoples is ethically relevant, according to the needs and desires of Indigenous peoples themselves and the importance of developing respectful and reciprocal Indigenous/non-Indigenous research partnerships of benefit for all, and how these kinds of best practice research guidelines are of value to all research communities.

Community Research is a not-for-profit organisation. If you are able, please consider choosing a ticket with a donation when you register for this webinar.

Community Research has created a private Facebook discussion group where you can meet other NGOs who are grappling with similar questions to you.
