The UBC Centennial Emerging Research Workshop on Ethics and Pragmatism in Indigenous Research will be held on February 22-24, 2016.

This workshop is intended to bring together a critical mass of UBC researchers, together with key community leaders in the field, to engage in cross-disciplinary dialogue on emerging opportunities to build meaningful relationships between indigenous communities and research institutions.

Key to this workshop is moving beyond the theoretical frameworks, to develop and understand pragmatic approaches to these research partnerships.
