A space for dialog to investigate the framework and ideas of InDICEs
An assembly is a group of members of an organization who meet periodically to make decisions about a specific area or scope of the organization.
Assemblies hold meetings, some are private and some are open. If they are open, it is possible to participate in them (for example: attending if the capacity allows it, adding points to the agenda, or commenting on the proposals and decisions taken by this organ).
Examples: A general assembly (which meets once a year to define the organisation's main lines of action as well as its executive bodies by vote), an equality advisory council (which meets every two months to make proposals on how to improve gender relations in the organisation), an evaluation commission (which meets every month to monitor a process) or a guarantee body (which collects incidents, abuses or proposals to improve decision-making procedures) are all examples of assemblies.
This assembly centers conversations around the definition and calibration of the basic research methods of the project, data gathering and organization. As a result there will be dedicated facets that encompass data acquisition and methods of data acquisition that will include forms of participatory research.
This assembly will seek to provide the analytical and empirical foundation of the InDICEs project, and aim at verifying the use of specific approaches and methods. The assembly will look into reviewing available data, its gaps, and of the possibility of generating or acquiring new data both through conventional and innovative channels.
This space will also be used to discuss research hypotheses and a call for hypothesis by non academic partners and external stakeholders.
