Social research in COVID-19 times


Social research during COVID-19 times brings together researchers working across policy, design, and place-based research. The discussion will start with a series of presentations about our experiences of research during the COVID-19 pandemic, from Taiwan, Peru, and the UK.

We will explore how the pandemic has affected research methods, research design, and ethics. We are keen to create a dialogue about new possibilities and how we manage the limitations of our current situation.
