Whose voices count? Doing research on the health of the poor

Part of the ESRC Festival of Social Science on 07 November 2016

How should we be doing research with people living in poverty, who are hard to reach, vulnerable, disadvantaged and social excluded? People living in deprived conditions have crucial perspectives inequalities, and through authentic engagement can provide important evidence for public policy.

This seminar brings together researchers working in different world regions to explore how we can do ‘people-centred’ and ‘action-oriented’ research on social and health inequalities. By people-centred research, we mean working with and for people who are directly affected by the issues being investigated. By actionoriented, we mean research that is embedded in contexts where the knowledge outputs can be acted upon for positive change.

At the seminar, we will also launch the Centre for Global Development at the University of Aberdeen, a centre of excellence committed to equity, social justice and sustainable futures.
