The Report of the Missing Women Commission of Inquiry was established in September 2010 to inquire into the failures of policing forces between 1997 and 2002 who were investigating the disappearance and murder of dozens of women in Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside, and particularly the police investigation of serial murderer Robert William Pickton.
Community-Based Research Toolkit: Resources and Tools for Doing Research with Community for Social Change
The tools, templates and resources in this toolkit were compiled and developed by the community-based research team at Access Alliance based on half a decade of implementing community-based research projects. This toolkit is designed for people and institutions interested in doing research using community-based research principles, and contains over 70 ready to use tools and templates and numerous best practices recommendations.
The report makes a number of recommendations that focus on ways Commissioners of inquiry can facilitate the participation of marginalized groups. Out of the failures of the provincial Missing Women Commission of Inquiry, the hope of the authors is that a positive legacy can still be uncovered.
This guide lays out ethical principles and guidelines for community-based participatory research. This guide focuses on the lessons learned by people working intensively in this area, and provides a useful resource for anyone interested in developing more participatory approaches to their research.
