LERRN-RRN Webinar Series on Ethics in Forced Migration Research

From November 2021 to March 2022, the Local Engagement Refugee Research Network (LERRN) and the Refugee Research Network (RRN) co-hosted a series of monthly webinars addressing the ethics of forced migration research at various stages of the research process, from setting the agenda to sharing the research. With a growing understanding in the field of forced migration that it is important to do research differently, this series was aimed at building a community of practice of people dedicated to supporting ethical and relevant research on forced migration, and at sharing best practices on designing and conducting research.
