Data usage

The results of the data collected through observations, individual interviews, and focus groups would form the basis for formulating concrete proposals for improving training, its evaluation and (remote) training design.

The results would further support the dissemination of the research, including supporting Judiciary/ Judicial College communication about judicial training in asylum, and writing my PhD thesis. What you say may be used in related project publications, presentations, and reports for academic outlets. Anonymity and confidentiality will be preserved at all times, and you will not be identifiable. You can withdraw your consent for your quotations to be used at any time during or after data collection, but prior to results publication.

Project outputs such as the PhD thesis and related publications, presentations, and reports would be collected in the University of Exeter’s (UoE) Institutional Repository Open Research Exeter (ORE) and the “researchfish” database, in line with UoE and ESRC dissemination guidelines.

Data that supports publications, such as extracts from interviews or focus groups, would be deposited to the UK Data Service.  Only fully anonymised data would be deposited. This is in line with UoE/ ESRC dissemination guidelines that promote open access to and reusability of publicly-funded anonymised research data. All quotations and data would be treated with anonymity and your privacy would be protected at all times. You can choose not to give your consent for anonymised data to be deposited. This would not impede your participation in the research.

If you like, we could discuss the project results upon project completion, and you could receive a summary report of the completed PhD thesis.
