Lindisfarne Centre; St Aidan's College, Durham University, DH1 3LJ,

This event is part of the Connected Communities Festival happening across the UK during 15th– 29th June 2015. It offers the opportunity to participate in a dilemmas cafe as a means of engaging in dialogue on ethical challenges in community-based participatory research (CBPR). It builds on the work of members of a community-university research team that has been working on ethics in CBPR, funded by the AHRC Connected Communities programme, seehttps://www.dur.ac.uk/beacon/socialjustice/ethics_consultation/

The café will start with tea and biscuits and will comprise three short accounts of current dilemmasfrom participatory researchers, followed by dynamic small group discussions around tables, with plenty of refreshments on tap, a final summing up and a buffet meal.

 The event is designed for people from voluntary, community and other organisations, academics and postgraduate researchers, who are engaged in community-based participatory research.

 BOOKING: The event is free, but places are strictly limited. Early booking is essential. To book a place, please fill in the online registration form at:
