Responsive Research and Gender-Based Analysis (+) in Socio-Economic Impact and Environmental Assessment.
Date: Friday February 15, 2019 Time: 4:30 - 6:45pm Location: Library Square Conference Center, Peter Kaye Room, Lower Level, 350 West Georgia, Vancouver
Please join us for an informative discussion and dialogue followed by a question and answer period and networking.
In a post-TRC era and with the US and Canadian endorsements of the UN Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples, understanding what constitutes responsive research is an important consideration for working in partnership with Indigenous nations and communities. Using a gender-based lens combined with strong local community relationships and a deeper understanding of cultural protocols is a key starting point for building meaningful, translocal partnerships and relational forms of accountability. Community-based research can provide gender-disaggregated data to support policy analysts in the completion of gender equality analysis of programs and policies. Through this workshop you will:
