Community-based Participatory Research: Ethical Challenges

This project was a scoping study funded by the AHRC Connected Communities Programme from March - October 2011. Led by Sarah Banks (PI) the aim was to provide a critical overview of a range of literature on participatory approaches to community-based research with a particular focus on ethical issues and the evaluation of outcomes, drawing on national and international experience.

The study focussed on participatory approaches to research in and with communities, particularly those categorised as 'diverse', 'hard to reach' or 'easily ignored'. Specifically, it identified ethical challenges in community-based participatory research (CBPR). The study involved a Co-inquiry Action Research group of community partners and academics and a team of international advisors.
