The issue of who to engage with and how to engage with communities when conducting the regulatory and ethical review of research is intersting and complex. A recent meeting report from the Argentine chapter of FLACEIS  reflects on what profile a community member in a review committee should have, and if she should be trained and how. The report is available in  English and Español.
Please reply to this blog to let us have any thoughts or reflections you have on engaging with communities during the review of research.
