Event announcement

Citizen participation in decision-making regarding the development of a hromada can be carried out in different ways. One of the consulting tools is the study of public opinion and research. Using various research methodologies leads to results that are appropriate for different purposes. Each of them has its limitations and possibilities. There are also specific methods of participatory action research.

On Thursday, February 16, from 14:00 to 16:00 Kyiv time (GMT+2), we invite you to a workshop on research as a tool for involving people in decision-making in hromadas. During the event, we will talk about the types of research-based decisions, how to organize and conduct participatory research in a hromada, and what ethical principles should be the basis of such research. Moreover, we will analyze different approaches to research with involvement and research for involvement in the case studies.
