Book launch: Ethics for real-world researchers




Speaker: Dr. Helen Kara

Series: NatCen-ESS ERIC-City methodology seminar series

Helen Kara will formally launch her new book - Research Ethics in the Real World: Euro-Western and Indigenous Perspectives (Policy Press, 2018) - at this upcoming event in the City, University of London, European Social Survey HQ and NatCen Social Research survey methodology seminar series.

Helen will address the importance of research ethics for quantitative, qualitative, and mixed-methods researchers by outlining the links between research ethics and individual, social, professional, institutional and political ethics, and demonstrate how those play out in practice. She will introduce the Indigenous research paradigm which has much to teach Euro-Western researchers about ethics. Helen will also explain the necessity for applying ethical principles at each stage of the research process, from choosing a research question to aftercare.

Dr. Helen Kara has been an independent researcher since 1999 and writes and teaches on research methods. She is the author of Creative Research Methods in the Social Sciences: A Practical Guide (Policy Press, 2015). In 2015, Helen was the first fully independent researcher to be conferred as a Fellow of the Academy of Social Sciences. She is also a Visiting Fellow at the UK's National Centre for Research Methods. Her latest book is available for pre-order now.
