Research Values and Principles

There are no instructions for how to best do this. However, when we continually ask questions of our research – and of ourselves as researchers – we can better respect plurality, emergence and bring a situational awareness to our research in context. We need to not only ask better questions of ourselves, but also question who decides when change is for the better. For example, is the change better for the planet, the local community, the industry partner? Is it better for future generations, late-stage capitalism, geo-political security or social equity? Making space for reflecting on how we practise research supports responsible research.
