We are a multidisciplinary team of researchers from Sheffield Hallam University, London Metropolitan University and the University of Alberta working on this two year research project funded by Joseph Rowntree Foundation.<

pic5This project uses a series of review and consultation exercises to consolidate expert opinion and to explore the feasibility and desirability of developing guidance to support commissioners of research, investigators, applicants and peer reviewers consider when and how ethnic diversity should be included in social policy-relevant research projects. 

The project will explore whether guidance can assist these actors in making appropriate decisions and recommendations regarding research design to ensure that ethnic diversity is appropriately, effectively and sensitively incorporated into such research.
