As part of a collaboration between the Canadian Council for Refugees (CCR), Canadian Association for Refugee and Forced Migration Studies (CARFMS), CRS, and International Association for the Study of Forced Migration (IASFM), several reference documents related to ethical considerations for research with people in forced migration have been developed over the past few years.
“Your Rights in Research” is an information sheet for people who are asked to participate in research. It is intended to explain in lay person’s terms, some of the vocabularies found in standard consent forms. It also outlines key considerations and resources, with particular attention to lived experiences of newcomers.
The Ethical Guidelines and the Executive Summary (with checklist) is available on CCR’s website: https://ccrweb.ca/en/ethical-considerations-research
The “Your Rights in Research” document is now available in 20 languages at: https://carfms.org/new-resource-your-rights-in-research/
