As governments wrestle with the trade-offs between continuing their lockdowns in support of public health during the Covid-19 crisis and easing restrictions to boost ailing economies, everyday life is changing. While it is hoped that some aspects of life before Covid-19 will resume, a new ‘normal’ will also likely emerge. And this is also the case with research and data collection. As this webinar reveals, the pandemic has brought new and existing challenges to the fore, not least in relation to doing research and data collection to inform programming and policy. Drawn from first-hand practical experience of research in Nigeria, Gaza, Tanzania and Bangladesh, this live interactive event co-hosted with the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine explores adaptations and solutions to the challenges of doing research during Covid-19 including the role of digital technology; how researchers are keeping safe and how ethical issues are being addressed; and the need to reconsider potentially extractive practices.
