Ethics Board

To observe the ethical requirements, an Ethics Board has been established from the onset of the project with the aim to observe and ensure the quality of the ethics implementation, incidental findings, protection of sensitive data and security policy. Throughout project implementation, the Ethics Board will contribute to ensure that no sensitive data is published, manage and inform about security-relevant findings and how to handle them. The following experts form our Ethics board:

Karine Christine Duplan

Dr. Karine Duplan is Senior Research Associate at the Department of Geography & Environment and at the Institute of Gender Studies at the University of Geneva. Positioned at the crossroad of geographies of gender and migration studies, her work aims at understanding the processes of reproduction of social inequalities in space in a context of growing globalization. She is particularly interested in transnational elite and its contribution to public space. She has notably carried out an ethnographic research among transnational elite in Luxembourg on the subjective experience of globalization from female expatriates’ standpoint, highlighting the contribution of these women to the transnational circulation of heteronormative standards. Karine is also highly invested in ethics and reflexivity issues in social sciences. She represents at SIRIUS the Committee on Ethics of the School of Social Sciences at the University of Geneva. She is also member of the Inter-Faculty Committee on Ethics of the University of Geneva.

Francesca Scrinzi

Dr. Francesca Scrinzi is Senior Lecturer in Sociology at the University of Glasgow and is currently Marie Sklodowska-Curie Fellow at the European University Institute. Her current project, titled MIGRANTCHRISTIANITY, focuses on Evangelical migrants in Southern Europe. She has researched women and gender relations in populist radical right parties in Europe through the project 'Gendering Activism in populist Radical Right Parties: A Comparative Study of Women's and Men's Participation in The Northern League (Italy) and The National Front (France)' (ERC Starting Grant 2012-2014). She has also carried out ethnographic comparative research work on gendered migration and migrant care workers in Italy and France. Among her recent publications: 'Caring for the elderly in the family or in the nation?

He has a BA in Economics and a PhD in Sociology from the University of Manchester. Simon’s research focuses on the intersection between public policies and organisational behaviour.

His research has been funded by bodies such as the Economic and Social Research Council, Medical Research Council, European Commission, OECD and by national governments. He has published in journals including Economy and Society, Journal of Social Policy, Organization, Policy and Politics, and Public Management Review.
