The "Working Better Together Conference on Indigenous Research Ethics" will take place February 19-20th, 2015 at the Listel Hotel in downtown Vancouver, BC.
This event will bring together community-engaged academic and community researchers, educators, practitioners, policy makers, analysts and research
administrators to explore what it really means – and what it takes – to work collaboratively in Indigenous research.
With guidance, inspiration and concrete examples provided by some of the leading experts in Canada, we will explore the dynamic intersection of policies, procedures, practices, and philosophies of contemporary Indigenous research ethics.
The event combines formal presentations with interactive opportunities to support information exchanges, networking and resource sharing. It will be of interest and value to those prepared to actively share their experience and expertise as well as to learn from what is shared by others.
Please note that space is limited in this event so early registration is recommended.
The POLIS Project and Centre for Global Studies are pleased to be co-sponsors of the conference with the Intellectual Property Issues in Cultural Heritage Project (SFU) and the International Society of Ethnobiology.
