The protocol tool-kits consist of real and simulated problem and solutions-based case examples to explore options for using the research, evaluation, and data collection protocol to respond to the complex ethical challenges of conceptualizing, conducting, and implementing research with, and for Black communities. Tool-kits are living resources that arise from specific local contexts, and proactively address the unique realities and challenges at the systems level. Online workshops and supportive content will also be made available.
The tool-kits pay particular attention to the way in which some individuals, groups, geographies, and or subpopulations are scapegoated, and are in need of being prioritized for protection and progressive responses, mitigating and repairing harm. The Tool-kits also address the realities and implications of power, power-imbalances, the ubiquity of systems, and implications of choice and decision-making algorithms.
