The project team is currently preparing five papers for publication, based on the findings from the first phase of our research. These will be presented at the 6th World Conference on Humanitarian Studies in November 2021. More information will be available on these soon. The team is also preparing four research briefs and a project report will be completed in September 2022.
How can we build mutual learning with IDPs, rather than engaging the research process in extractive terms? This is a question that researchers from the Data and Displacement team discuss in a project podcast, recorded in February 2021, which is available here. The podcast brings together PI Professor Vicki Squire with Co-I Dr Briony Jones and Research Fellows Dr Prithvi Hirani and Grant Tregonning, who collectively consider the importance and challenges of engaging a participatory ethos within our fieldwork, as well as the research process as a whole.
In April 2021, Data and Displacement team members published a collaborative blog entitled ‘Data and Displacement: Collaborative Research at a Time of Uncertainty. The blog discusses the strengths of the research and the importance of collaborative teamwork in a time of uncertainty. It is available here.
In September 2021, Data and Displacement team held a 3-day online capacity building workshop in collaboration with our University of Ibadan partners. The workshop aims to enhance researchers skills in using Nvivo for Qualitative analysis. Over 800 people registered for this workshop, including students in local & regional universities.
