CALL FOR PAPERS: CARFMS 19 INTERROGATING INTEGRATION
Center for Refugee Studies, York University, Toronto
May 14th to May 16, 2019

PANEL: Decolonizing Ethics: critical reflections on research, power and privilege in forced migration scholarship
Organizers: Neil Bilotta (McGill University), Christina Clark-Kazak (University of Ottawa), Maritza Felices-Luna (University of Ottawa), Dina Taha (York University)
                              
Research with people in situations of forced migration poses particular ethical challenges to academic researchers and practitioners. The traditional ethical principles maintained by formal entities such as research ethics boards (e.g. REB) and scholarly discourse regarding “research ethics protocols” are not only limited in scope but in definition. For example, the underpinnings of research ethics protocols vary according to culture, social location, and positionality. Thus, recognizing that: (a) the contemporary understanding and practice of “research ethics” is a product of a Euro-centric/colonizing ideology; and (b) research with forced migrants poses particular ethical and methodological challenges arising from the unequal power relations between the researcher and the researched, the criminalization of migration, extreme vulnerability and politicized research contexts among others, we invite scholars to engage with ethical questions beyond REBs and to reimagine the meaning of ethical research and its implications.

In particular, how can researchers perceive central issues such as: decolonizing academic knowledge production; power and privilege in academic knowledge production; the shifting roles and identities of the researcher; the socio-economic realities of partnership organizations; and data ownership/access, through an ethical lens or as ethical issues. A major objective is to strive for ethical paradigms that a drive for a more meaningful and egalitarian dialogue with and for people in situations of displacement.

Possible topics may include (but are not limited to):

- How can researchers reimagine traditional ethical principles (consent, confidentiality, no harm…etc.) using indigenous and non-Western practices and ways of knowing?

- How can local and contextualized research contribute to understanding and reimagining “ethics” in research?

- What are some ways to trace and minimize power and privilege in academic knowledge production?

- Are there any methodological innovations and/or contemporary methodological lenses that can balance the power and decolonize knowledge production?

- What are some practical ethical dilemmas and situations that researchers have encountered when doing research with people in situations of forced migration?

- Who makes the decision on what is “problematic”? or what is ethical? For instance, how are ethical codes of “respect for persons” and “doing no harm” understood from the perspectives of the researcher and the researched?

- What are some alternative approaches to ethical guidelines and what are their limitations?

- How can we rethink notions such as: vulnerability, partnership, accountability, and ethics of witnessing in forced migration research?

- What do concepts such as ethical reflexivity, objectivity and researcher neutrality and the crisis of representation really mean from a critical/anticolonial and indigenous perspective?

- What responsibility does Forced Migration Studies have towards reconceptualizing “research ethics” with forcibly displaced communities?

If you are interested in contributing to this panel please submit an abstract of no more than 200 words before December 12, 2018 at this link: https://goo.gl/forms/UaQWUXamiiqGMzWA3
