Ethics in participatory research under Covid-19
Request for case examples (by 31 July 2021)

We are inviting people to write short case examples about ethical issues in conducting participatory research during Covid-19 restrictions. By ‘participatory research’ we mean research where people who might usually be regarded as subjects of research play a more active role in at least some aspects of the process (e.g. design, data collection, analysis, dissemination, implementation). We are seeking to include examples from different countries around the world, as well as from working across different groups in terms of age, gender, ethnicity, etc., relating to health and social well-being in the wider sense. The case studies can include (but are not limited to) issues such as: access to communities during Covid-19, trust-building online, issues of privacy and confidentiality in online communications, tackling digital exclusion, deciding whether to conduct research in-person, the impact of wearing masks and physical distancing, assessing new health risks, power dynamics, roles and responsibilities, etc.
The case studies will be placed on the International Collaboration on Participatory Health Research (ICPHR) website. These can be used in training, teaching and in preparing groups to undertake participatory research projects. We may also use them in articles or other publications, with the consent of the case writers. The cases will complement the ICPHR ethical guidelines.

ICPHR members, Maria Roura, Sonia Dias, Joseph W. LeMaster, and Anne MacFarlane have published a new review article titled: Participatory health research with migrants: Opportunities, challenges, and way forwards in Health Expectations.
Migration is one of the most politically pressing issues of the 21st century but migrant health remains an under‐researched area. The International Collaboration for Participatory Health Research (ICPHR) working group on migration developed this position statement to address opportunities and challenges in relation to migrant health. It aims to contribute to a shift from a deficit model that sees migrants as passively affected by policies to their reconceptualization as citizens who are engaged in the co‐creation of solutions.
This paper examines the opportunities and challenges posed by the use of PHR with migrants. It draws on a broad literature to provide examples of successful PHR with migrants and highlights critical issues for consideration.
Successful initiatives illustrate the value of engaging migrants in the definition of the research agenda, the design and implementation of health interventions, the identification of health‐protective factors and the operationalization and validation of indicators to monitor progress. Within increasingly super diverse contexts, fragmented community landscapes that are not necessarily constructed along ethnicity traits, inadequate structures of representation, local tensions and operational barriers can hamper meaningful PHR with migrants.
For each research context, it is essential to gauge the ‘optimal’ level and type of participation that is more likely to leverage migrants’ empowerment. The development of Monitoring and Evaluation tools and methodological strategies to manage inter‐stakeholder discrepancies and knowledge translation gaps are steps in this direction.
Patient or public contributionThis paper draws from contributions of migrant populations and other stakeholders to policymaking.

Morgan State University (www.morgan.edu) announces that beginning in February 2021 it will be hosting the Central Office of the International Collaboration for Participatory Health Research.
Morgan State University is located in Baltimore, Maryland (USA), and was established in 1867. Morgan State is one of the United States’ Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs), and is designated as Maryland’s Preeminent Public Urban Research University.
Morgan is a research institution offering more than 126 academic programs leading to degrees from the baccalaureate to the doctorate. Morgan has a strong track record of international partnerships with China, Brazil, South Africa, Ghana, Botswana, Nigeria, and beyond.
In June 2019, Morgan State University successfully hosted ICPHR’s 10th Annual Working Meeting, the first in the United States. The event was attended by more than 70 individuals from 12 countries around the world.
Morgan serves a multiethnic and multiracial community of students, faculty, and partners outside the university, seeking to ensure that the doors of higher education are opened as wide as possible to as many as possible. In addition to maintaining the integrity of ICPHR, Morgan State plans to generate resources through U.S. federal and other grant opportunities so as to increase ICPHR’s organizational capacity.
Prof. Payam Sheikhattari (email@example.com) and Ms. Gillian Silver (firstname.lastname@example.org), members of ICPHR’s Executive Committee, will lead the transition of the Central Office from Berlin to Baltimore. Contact either of them for more information.
