More specifically, Prof. Dr. Hella von Unger, from the Department of Sociology of LMU Munich as a partner of the CHANGER project, is co-organising a summer workshop for qualitative methodologies at the EineWeltHaus. The workshop will explore how individuals, stakeholders, and communities can be involved in research ethics and ethics reviews, main topics of the CHANGER project.

The starting point is a shift in perspective: research ethics is not solely the concern of researchers but also involves research participants as well as communities and societies, in which the research takes place. With these stakeholders, fundamentally different value and knowledge systems may enter into the ethical debate. The following speakers will stimulate the discussion: 

  • Sarah Banks (Professor of Social Work, University of Durham, UK): Negotiating the ethical space in participatory action research 
  • Tatjana Buklijas (Senior Research Fellow, Faculty of Arts, KOI TŪ/Centre for Informed Futures, New Zealand): Indigenous knowledge and values in research ethics and governance in Aotearoa New Zealand

Furthermore, participants of the workshop will have the opportunity to present selected works on the topic in short presentations and engage in dialogue and discussion in a World Café session. To all interested applicants, please describe your proposal for a brief presentation of a topic that may be discussed in depth in the World Café when registering. If you have any questions about the workshop, please contact Olaf Tietje ( 

The workshop will take place physically at the EineWeltHaus, Schwanthaler Strasse 80, Munich (close to the main train station), and the working language will be English.
