Everyone involved in the international development research chain has the right to be safe from harm
About this Event
UKCDR would like to invite you to a webinar on “Preventing harm in research – safeguarding in international development research” taking place on Wednesday 1 July, from 2-3:30pm
In April 2020, UKCDR launched guidance on safeguarding in international development research to ensure the highest safeguarding standards in this context. UK funders of international development research worked with UKCDR to develop a set of principles and best practice guidance on safeguarding to anticipate, mitigate and address potential and actual harms in the funding, design, delivery and dissemination of research.
This webinar, targeted at the international development research community, aims to:
- raise awareness of the new guidance
- increase understanding of the definition of safeguarding in the context of international development research
- highlight how the research community can use it.
- reflect on safeguarding considerations in the context of COVID-19.
The event will be held live virtually through Microsoft Teams Live and is open to the public. We invite researchers, research managers and administrators based in the UK and in LMICs to join.
