Short Abstract:

In the wake of COVID-19, researchers are shifting to physically-distanced research formats. This panel considers the feasibility and challenges, as well as best practices, of remote research methods within the field of international development.

Long Abstract:

This panel aims to explore remote research methods in the field of international development, and reflect how researchers have adopted them as a way to conduct fieldwork. We especially welcome contributions that touch upon one or more of the following:

• How mobility disruptions, physical distancing and lockdown measures as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic had pivoted your plans and reshaped your research design;

• Creative participatory research and data collection methods, such as remote video and photo diaries, online surveys and digital ethnography;

• Considerations for shifting from in-person to remote research methods, especially the ongoing impact on the participants involved in the research;

• The ethical challenges of remote research methods, in particular when working with vulnerable communities in developing and less developed countries;

• The practical challenges of remote research methods, including the legitimacy and reliability of data collected.

As an experimental panel, accepted papers are required to submit a pre-recorded video presentation, which will be played in the allocated timing during the conference. A live Q&A and discussion with all of the panel speakers and conference participants will follow after all of the presentations have been played.

Accepted papers:
