Ethics application approved

In the UK, research projects that involve human participants need to be reviewed by an adequate ethics committee. This process ensures compliance with good ethical practice and effective protection of the dignity, rights, privacy, health and safety of research participants as well as researchers. I am thrilled to say that Living Together has now been considered and approved by the College of Social Science Research Ethics Committee at the University of Glasgow. This means that I have been given the green light to conduct fieldwork with Polish migrants and the long-settled residents in the East End of Glasgow. I am looking forward to officially starting on 3 July 2017!
