Research Centres and Institutes Audit Tool
Lucy Ansley, Paris Connelly and Richard Hall
The self-audit tool aims to support research centres and institutes at DMU (and wider) to look at their research and related activities with a decolonising lens. It is a tool to enable centre and institute teams to reflect on their practices/ activities and to develop their own objectives or even strategic plans around decolonising.
In this session, we will discuss the development of the tool, walk through it’s use and provide teams with some ideas of how best to put the tool to use within their own centres and institutes.
