Unerlässlich, aber heikel: Wie Forschung in Konfliktgebieten gelingt

Forschung zur Waldnutzung in Madagaskar, zur Gesellschaft in Afghanistan oder zu epidemischem Fieber in Westafrika – wie sich Forschende in Konfliktgebieten verhalten sollen, zeigen die neuen «Richtlinien für konfliktsensitive Forschung» der Kommission für Forschungspartnerschaften mit Entwicklungsländern der Akademie der Naturwissenschaften Schweiz. Möchte die Wissenschaft einen Beitrag zu den globalen Herausforderungen leisten, muss sie sich auch in fragilen und von Konflikten geprägten Gegenden bewegen. Die Richtlinien sollen dazu beitragen, dass Forschende in einem Konfliktgebiet einen positiven Beitrag leisten können – und gleichzeitig Sicherheitsrisiken für die eigene Forschung reduzieren.
