Ethics and Politics of Community Engagement in Global Health Research (360G-Wellcome-201351_Z_16_Z)
This application is for a workshop to be held in Oxford in April 2016 entitled Ethics and Politics of Community Engagement in Global Health Research. The aim of the workshop is to further critical thinking on ‘engagement’ through three modalities. First, the workshop aims to foster knowledge exchange between divergent actors working in and on community engagement ranging from community and institution based engagement practitioners and applied researchers to critical scholars in philosophy, anthropology, sociology, science and technology studies, development studies and political science. Through this exchange, the workshop will address practical and political challenges of ‘engagement’ implementation, and will contribute to conceptual and normative development of these issues. Second, the workshop will further the field by assisting scholars and practitioners to share experiences and challenges of engagement with broader audiences. Pre-circulated papers will be discussed and a selection of these papers included in an edited volume entitled Critical Issues in Community Engagement. Finally, the workshop aims to explore possibilities for a collaborative, comparative research project that moves beyond local specificities to think more broadly about the social and political dynamics of engagement in global health research.
