Friday 30th October 11am NZ Time
Join our October webinar to hear Martin Tolich and Dr Lily George from the NZ Ethics Committee discuss community research ethics and how the NZEC can support you or your organisation on your community research journey. The panelists will also speak about some of the pressing issues in ethical community research including:
• Te Tiriti o Waitangi
• Pākehā Paralysis
They will discuss what defines research, why ethics is important, who needs to consider ethics and how we can address this kaupapa better as research commissioning organisations and those undertaking research.
We also have the official relaunch of the revised Community Research Code of Practice with our Community Research Co-chair, Garth Nowland-Foreman.
Finally, we will be promoting a range of professional associations that can support you in your ethical practice and some of the indemnity requirements you may need to consider when undertaking or commissioning research in the community.
