Issues in Researcher Safety

This course deals with ways of keeping physically safe and ways of coping with emotional challenge or upset. It also deals with institutional protections offered by universities – risk assessments, ethics committee oversight, insurance and counselling.

It has been developed by Michael Bloor, a professorial fellow in the School of Social Sciences at Cardiff University, and is designed to cater for social science postgraduates undertaking or planning research on sensitive topics, or in hazardous environments.
