This multidisciplinary panel brings humanities and social sciences researchers to discuss the challenges and opportunities that arise from their collaboration with Indigenous communities and researchers outside the UK. Sub-topics to be addressed include the researcher’s role in co-producing knowledge (e.g., ethical and political responsibility) and the importance of methodological innovations to actively avoid reproducing asymmetric power relations. The panel will also discuss the need to bridge knowledge from different cultures and how transdisciplinary work might occur.
The Welsh Centre for International Affairs Chief Executive will also offer a distinctive perspective on their engagement with communities outside academia.
