Top-down Meets bottom up: Negotiating ethics in participatory action research (PAR) for health and social well-being.
The Centre for Social Justice and Community Action (CSJCA), Durham University, was launched in May 2009 with a Conference at Durham University. This conference in May 2019 will celebrate the wide range of activities of the centre, particularly building on work on ethics in PAR undertaken over the past 10 years by CSJCA and others across the world.
In a rapidly changing world children and young people are subjected to a wide range of social, cultural and economic pressures which impact significantly on their everyday lives. At the same time, these pressures shape educational, social and welfare policies and practices in ways that have direct implications for how professionals work with and for children and young people.
This year's conference will be hosted by colleagues at the University of Ulster in Northern Ireland.
The annual residential conference is an opportunity for members and guests to spend an extended time together, to reflect on practice, present research papers and engage in workshops/seminars. This years location will afford the opportunity to engage with the cultural story of Derry and visit youth and community work practice settings. The Annual Conference is also when our Annual General Meeting takes place, members are elected to committee roles and the action plan for 2016-17 is discussed with members.
