Dear SIAHub Member, we are seeking your input on the future of qualitative research in Impact Assessment!

Impact Assessment (IA) needs to get better at dealing with diverse knowledge, perspectives, and experiences. So, our team is working to create a best practice toolkit for use by anyone involved in IA to help them apply qualitative methods. This project has the not-so-snappy title “Qualitative Study Design for the Next Generation of Impact Assessment.” This project is housed at the University of Manitoba and is being led by a team of 11 international IA researchers and practitioners, including:

·       John Sinclair, Professor, University of Manitoba, Canada

·       Alan Bond, Professor, University of East Anglia, UK

·       Alan Diduck, Professor, University of Winnipeg

·       Angus Morrison-Saunders, Professor, Edith Cowan University, Australia

·       Francois Retief, Professor, North West University, South Africa

·       Glen Koroluk, Executive Director, Manitoba Eco-Network, Canada

·       Jenny Pope, Director, Integral Sustainability, Australia

·       Meinhard Doelle, Professor, Dalhousie University, Canada

·       Richard Roberts, President, The Praxis Group, Canada

·       Heidi Walker, Research Associate, University of Manitoba, Canada

·       Brendan Middel, Student, University of Manitoba, Canada

 

As an early component of this study, we are conducting an online survey to explore what qualitative methods are currently used in IA and how they are being applied. You have been identified as potentially holding expertise in this area and we welcome your participation. We expect that the survey should take approximately 15-20 minutes to complete and it can be accessed here:

Please review the consent page at the beginning of the survey for additional details about the project and procedures. We would appreciate your response by April 29, 2022.

This study has received ethics approval through the University of Manitoba Research Ethics Board.  

Please feel free to contact Prof. John Sinclair if you have any questions about this project. Thank you for your time and consideration.

Best wishes,


John Sinclair
