Ethics and the Practice of Conducting Political Science Field Research and Teaching in the MENA Region
Date: 10 and 11 June 2015
Location: King Mohammed V University, Rabat
Funded by the American Political Science Association MENA Program and Carnegie Corporation of New York, the LSE Middle East Centre and King Mohammed V University in Rabat will co-host a workshop on “The Ethics of Political Science Research Post-2011 in MENA”. The workshop will be an intensive discussion over June 10 and 11 among researchers and scholars facing shared challenges, in terms of human subject protection, identity of the researcher, increased state surveillance, working in conflict areas and with vulnerable people. Best practices of teaching political science inside the region will also be discussed.
The workshop follows on the efforts of the POMEPS program at George Washington University.
The workshop aims to create a dialogue with professional associations and research institutes to produce a shared statement of ethics and research practice.
If you would like to attend the workshop please email Dr Karen Young for more information and to register your interest. There is no funding available for participants.
