Is it possible to be both a researcher and an advocate, or does one position inherently compromise the other? Come hear a panel of experienced social researchers explore this question.
The Centre for Applied Social Research (CASR) has brought together a panel of RMIT and external researchers to delve into this issue. They will draw on their own experiences to tease out the complex interaction between passion and objectivity in social research.
This event is hosted as part of the CASR Occassional Seminar Series.
