Cultural evolution in research practices

Two Research Projects and one Applied Working Group are addressing this theme. Find out more by clicking on the titles:

Cultural evolution in global health research [Applications theme, PI Angela Obasi]: This project investigates the extent to which a ‘reflexivity statement’ in journal submissions reduces ‘parachute research’ through cultural transmission of equitable attitudes.

Is generalizability to the Global South predictable? [Reality theme, PI Anisha Singh]: This project interrogates the research practice of applying behavioural science conceived and tested in the Global North to the Global South.

Culture as a Tool [PI Andrew Buskell]: This Applied Working Group aims to reckon with the ways academics, policy makers and the public use the term culture to categorise people and as a tool in policy.
