Conducting Social Science Research in Risky Environments

Dates:
  • Fri 19 Jan 2018 09.00 - 15.00
  Add to Calendar 2018-01-19 9:00 2018-01-19 15:00 Europe/Paris Conducting Social Science Research in Risky Environments

This one-day workshop aims to discuss new trends in social-science research carried out in risky
contexts, the challenges posed to the safety and security of researchers and informants, as well as the
impact of these trends and challenges on knowledge production.

It will gather a group of experienced researchers from a number of European universities and
institutions who carry out fieldwork in challenging environments (because of the subject of their
research and/or of the regions in which they conduct their fieldwork).

The workshop endeavours to provide a space to discuss the constraints, risks and challenges of
conducting research in risky environments, as well as to share experiences and ideas with the aim of
reaching consensus on best practice.

The workshop will be structured as an informal roundtable, which will be initiated by a welcome from
the EUI President and an introductory session to present a set of questions that will later guide the
discussions. A tour de table will introduce the researchers present and their experiences, before
initiating the informal discussion, which will take an academic as well as practical approach.
