This Working Group is focused on the “doing” of research during COVID-19. It will examine the operational, ethical, and situational challenges faced by researchers in times of pandemic. Due to COVID-19, new takes on old challenges of quick-response disaster social science research are emerging. The group will identify novel unanticipated challenges related to working in a societal setting interrupted by COVID-19 and explore strategies to overcome such challenges.
