Rico Lie (KTI), Leon Pijnenburg (PHI) and Loes Witteveen: Visual informed consent in social science research

Visual Informed Consent (VIC) seeks to replace paper-based informed consent procedures in situations of visual data collection and use. VIC intends to capture on film the clarification of the purpose of data collection, the use of information obtained, and the rights, risks and benefits of participation on the one hand, and the registration of the participant’s understanding of this and of given consent on the other.

Filming informed consent offers several benefits as compared to working with written forms, whereby the bureaucratic concerns for documented and ‘signed’ informed consent are given priority over the right to be informed. Based on empirical research in a context of film productions in the global South, this seminar discusses VIC’s potential and illustrates its procedure and relevance.
