The session is part of the SOAS-Oxford Research for Development (R4D) lunchtime series: An informal space to discuss all aspects of ODA-funded, development-oriented research: from ethics to impact and everything in between.
The increased diversification of the ODA funding portfolio brings new opportunities for research institutions to engage in development-focused research through schemes like GCRF and Newton Fund. But what does it mean to do research for development ethically and effectively? How are researchers' roles and expectations changing to meet the demands for impactful research? How should we engage with partners, decision makers and communities across cultural, gender and socioeconomic divides? What new pressures do research managers and research officers face to meet compliance requirements? Each event aims to bring together researchers, students and facilitators to learn, discuss and share insights on specific aspects of ODA-funded research in an informal, interactive and thought-provoking space.
