Guest Lecture Series
Disaster Research: Tips and Ethics
Speaker: Caroline Brassard, PhD
(LKY School of Public Policy - NUS Singapore)
Friday - February 12th | 16.00 WIB | Seminar room ICAIOS Darussalam
Using examples of recent research projects, this talk highlights some of the lesser known methodological and ethical challenges in the field of disaster research. The session focusses on three aspects of research in post or pre disaster contexts:
1. Common dilemmas and hidden questions in designing disaster research.
2. Ethical considerations about collecting and using data (qualitative and/or quantitative) in disaster research.
3. Being an ethical researcher in the 'insider-outsider' continuum.
Participants are encouraged to think about their own experiences and be ready to share them as part of the open discussion at the end of the talk, in an effort to learn from each other.
