Funded by the American Political Science Association MENA Program and Carnegie Corporation of New York, the LSE Middle East Centre and King Mohammed V University in Rabat co-hosted a workshop on ‘The Ethics of Political Science Research and Teaching in MENA’. On June 9-11, a discussion was held between researchers and scholars facing shared challenges, in terms of human subject protection, identity of the researcher, increased state surveillance, working in conflict areas and with vulnerable people. Participants also shared best practices of teaching political science inside the region. The workshop follows on the efforts of POMEPS at George Washington University.

Each participant in the workshop contributed a memo, which will be uploaded on the blog.
