Trust was invited to present at the workshop “Research Ethics and Communities”, hosted by the Senate Ethics in Research Committee and the Office of Research Integrity at the University of Cape Town on 17 May 2017.

Mrs Rachel Wynberg, Associate Professor at the University of Cape Town and TRUST team member, gave an introduction to the project, followed by Mr. Collin Louw, a #Khomani San community member and representative in the South African San Council, who spoke about the recently launched San Code of Research Ethics, illustrating in an interesting picture show how the code was only one part of a very long process. Mr. Hennie Swart, Director of the South African San Institute and also part of the TRUST team, closed by outlining future efforts on how the code is now to be implemented.

The audience received the topics with great interest and acknowledged the importance of the TRUST efforts to contribute to fair research relationships.
