Nov 23, 2011 | Category: CGAP News

As part of this year’s ESRC Festival of Social Sciences, Tobias Jung and Jenny Harrow organised a roundtable discussion on ‘Co-producing research: working together or falling apart?’ at Cass Business School on 2nd November.

The session brought together representatives from academia and the third sector to consider the practical, methodological and ethical issues of joint academic-voluntary sector research. Jan Fishwick (PACT - Parents and Children Together), Jim Clifford (Baker Tilly), Jeanie Scott (Arts & Business Scotland) and Cathy Pharoah (CGAP) provided a background for the discussion by talking about their own experiences of research co-production. In the following discussion, key themes that were addressed included the mutual benefits of a co-production approach, the question of who sets and shapes the research question(s), the handling of sensitive results and the challenges of competing agendas and interference.
