Research Ethics with International Partners

Webinar | Wednesday April 24, 2024, 2 - 3 p.m. MT

Presenters will share key ethical considerations for partnered research in international communities.

This session will introduce suggestions for translating or contextualizing UCalgary’s westernized processes when working with international partners. How may approaches for recruitment, consent, relationship development or incentives need to be reassessed with unique cultural expectations?
