Inclusive Research: A Niu Approach to Participant Recruitment in the Pacific
Pacific research that explores sensitive health topics like domestic violence would benefit from a new approach to participant recruitment. Few Pacificcentred recruitment methods exist, and standard recruitment practices may not reflect the cultural contexts of researched communities. This In Brief presents a niu (‘coconut’ in many Pacific languages) metaphor for inclusive Pacific recruitment that explicitly centres the needs of the most vulnerable within a research project.
