SRA Ireland

The Social Research Association has a unique contribution to make to the professional development of social research and the community of social researchers across the UK and in Ireland.

SRA Ireland is very active, consisting of members from across the public, private, voluntary and academic sectors that attend our seminars and events to learn and to network.  SRA Ireland provides the opportunity for social researchers to meet others in their field and to keep abreast of developments.

SRA Ireland members receive all the benefits of SRA membership including discounted rates for training and events. In addition, SRA Ireland hosts a programme of seminars to which members and non-members are welcome to attend.

Ethics and the Research Process with Helen Kara: 24 October 2017, Dublin.

Download flyer pdf file

Is research ethics a dry, bureaucratic topic, dealt with through forms and committees? Or is it a dynamic principle that underpins the whole of the research process?

Helen Kara, author of Research Ethics in the Real World (Policy Press, forthcoming) will argue that ethics is not something you can tick off your to-do list. Ethics requires considerable thought and attention, from the moment a research question is posed, potentially until long after a project is complete. Come and discover some new ways to work ethically in practice. Lively discussions guaranteed!
