Event description
Researchers, participants and stakeholders discuss challenges and opportunities to archive, share and reuse migration research data.

About this Event

Sharing and archiving qualitative research data for future reuse often poses ethical challenges in research with vulnerable participants and on sensitive topics. Personal stories told may be impossible to anonymise. Research participants from different cultural backgrounds may have a different understanding of ethical principles and consent, which complicates the consent procedures UK-based researchers may be familiar with. At the same time, also qualitative research data provide valuable evidence and often unique resources for future research and policy making. And even vulnerable research participants may want their voices heard beyond the primary research.

Using migration research as a case study, this seminar brings together various stakeholders to discuss the complexities and opportunities of sharing, archiving and reusing qualitative data in an interactive way. Based on views and experiences shared by researchers, research participants, migrants and their representatives and spokespeople, group discussions will aim to develop practical guidelines for sharing and archiving qualitative data for future reuse.

This seminar is organised by the UK Data Service and funded by the Global Challenges Research Fund.
