Panel: Team Collaboration in the Field with Criminal Justice Researchers

Fieldwork is a fluid process defined by seemingly never-ending negotiation of both the professional and personal expectations of what it takes to be an effective qualitative researcher.  The following webinar is a confessional tale by four dynamic criminal justice researchers with experience navigating collaborative qualitative research projects. These projects involve a range of participants from those who are incarcerated to hidden populations. This panel discussion will cover topics including challenges in recruiting people who use drugs for community public health surveillance projects, accessing & managing key informants and reciprocity, applied methods in criminal justice settings, and interdisciplinary collaborations for participatory research.
