How to Do Ethical Research

An EPIC Talk with NAZIMA KADIR, October Anthropologist 10 November 2020, 8:00 am San Francisco / 4:00 pm London / 6:00 Cape Town

In commercial environments, there is often a lack of understanding of research ethics. As a result, navigating the world of ethics can often be stressful and challenging for commercial researchers. In this session, Nazima Kadir will: 1) provide a history of ethical research and its relevance to commercial researchers who interact with people 2) explain the concept of informed consent and how to practice it throughout the research process 3) provide an opportunity for participants to evaluate different situations that arise in commercial research and evaluate them using ethical research frameworks. Nazima's approach to ethical research is based on her experience conducting sensitive and long-term research among vulnerable populations, undergoing rigorous human subjects reviews, and using the ethical guidelines of the American Anthropological Association and the Market Research Society. She has conducted research with populations as varied as Asian domestic workers in Cyprus, victims of police conduct in New York City, squatters in Amsterdam, African immigrant mothers in London, and gig economy workers in Brazil.
