Ethical Considerations in Research with People in Situations of Forced Migration


The CCR participated with others in a project to develop ethical guidelines for research with people in situations of forced migration. 

The guidelines include a checklist for organizations who are approached by researchers, to help evaluate whether the research will be conducted ethically, and taking into consideration the particular vulnerabilities of people who have been forcibly displaced.

In addition to the guidelines, there is a document “Your Rights in Research: an information sheet for people taking part in forced migration research (in English, French and Arabic).
