Hopeful & Joyful

Survivor Research

We conduct research that translates into better futures.

We ensure that we have time and resources to celebrate together.

We intentionally identify and focus on work that sustains hope.

We strive for all stages of research to be joyful and for our work to be liberatory.


This map captures a shared vision, values, and principles underpinning ethical survivor-controlled research.

It also captures some of the complexities and

obstacles associated with this.

It was created through a collaborative process of reflecting, discussing, challenging, and imagining what research by and for survivors would look and feel like.

The map is shaped and reshaped as we find our way in the current landscape and carve out new paths for survivor-controlled research in and outside of academia.

All travellers on this journey are welcome to use and adapt this map.
