This evidence review, undertaken in March-April 2019 by a team led by Dr David Orr at the University of Sussex, aims to characterise the nature of safeguarding issues and challenges that may arise in the specific context of international development research, identify existing guidance and review its implementation.

This rapid review was guided by two overarching questions:

1.What is known about the prevalence and nature of vulnerability, power imbalances, and safeguarding concerns within international development research?

2.How is safeguarding currently addressed within international development research, what is the evidence on how fit for purpose it is, and what models of good practice can be identified?
A draft set of principles and best practice guidance, drawn from the findings of this evidence review, are set out in this 10 page briefing paper.
