CARE Panel: The Ethics of Community Engaged Research

Tuesday, January 28, 2020
12-1:30 p.m.
165 Thompson Library

There has been a recent push for community engaged research, particularly when the research is conducted across cultural, structural and economic differences. This workshop, presented by the Center for Ethics and Human Values, will examine issues involved when engaging a community as a research partner, including:

  • What constitutes a community?
  • Can individual representatives be recruited to speak for the community?
  • If so, who?
  • How do our common research practices and norms – such as informed consent and authorship – change when we engage the community?
  • How do we measure the success of a project’s community engagement?

Panelists include Charles Weijer (Professor, Canada Research Chair in Bioethics, Western University), Susan Melsop (Associate Professor, Department of Design, Ohio State University) and Abigail Shoben (Associate Professor, College of Public Health, Ohio State University).
