Carleton University Offering Institute on the Ethics of Research with Indigenous Peoples

Carleton University’s Institute on the Ethics of Research with Indigenous Peoples (CUIERIP) 2016, a six-day immersive experience devoted to learning about good practices in ethical research with First Nations, Métis and Inuit communities, takes place June 5 to 10, 2016.

Where: River Building, Carleton University
When: June 5-10, 2016
More Information: http://carleton.ca/indigenousresearchethics/information/.
Note: Event organizers are available in advance to discuss the institute. Journalists are not permitted to attend individual sessions.

CUIERIP provides a collaborative and safe learning environment for students, faculty, community members and professionals working on Indigenous issues and research ethics. Carleton faculty, presiding elders, community leaders and research ethics professionals lead CUIERIP.

During CUIERIP, Indigenous and non-Indigenous researchers learn about the ethics of research with Indigenous communities.

The institute features speakers with expertise in research ethics, community engagement and research design and review. Participants will work in small groups, using case studies to work through the ethical issues involved in community engagement plans and research agreements. Elders and research ethics experts will be on hand for consultation. A model ethics review body of academic and community reviewers will provide feedback and all participants will be invited to share their perspectives in closing circles.

Carleton acknowledges the location of its campus on the traditional, unceded territories of the Algonquin nation. The CUIERIP development team acknowledges the Secretariat on Responsible Conduct of Research for its support in the development of this institute. In addition, Carleton acknowledges the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC) for its support.
