Study Title: Women’s rights in fragile contexts
This study examines the views of women living in conflict-affected societies in relation to their living situation and their well-being. You have been invited to participate in this study because you are aged 18 and above and have lived in a region affected by conflict in the last five years. Participation is entirely voluntary. If you choose to take part, you will be asked to complete an online questionnaire which should take you no more than 5-10 minutes to complete. You will be asked to provide some background information such as ethnic background, age, marital status, offspring (if any), and education. Your responses will be anonymized automatically through the survey platform, therefore, once you have completed and submitted an anonymous questionnaire it is not possible to withdraw the data because we won’t know who you are. Your data will be handled and stored in accordance with the UK Data Protection Act (2018) and the University of Nottingham’s Code of Research Conduct and Research Ethics. A password protected computer will be used to store the information and only the researchers will be able to view it. Upon completion of the study, all raw data will be kept on an encrypted database securely by the University of Nottingham for 7 years. All precautions will be taken by those involved in the research to safeguard confidentiality during this time, after which the data will be disposed of securely. The data collected in this study will be analyzed and written up and may get published. However, confidentiality will be maintained at all times and only anonymous data will be used for the report and publication. A summary of the overall findings of the study may be obtained upon request by emailing the chief investigator (firstname.lastname@example.org). If you have any queries or complaints, please contact the chief investigator in the first instance. If this does not resolve your query, please write to the Nottingham University Business School’s Research Ethics Officer (email@example.com).
