INFORMED CONSENT TO PARTICIPATE IN RESEARCH
You are invited to participate in this study “Diaspora Mapping”. The purpose of this study is to collect demographic and location information on the Nepali diaspora community across the globe and create a comprehensive mapping for the diaspora members with the goal to foster diaspora engagement and support future research. This study is being conducted by the Great Nepali Diaspora (TGND) and the volunteer team Abhinab Kadel, Bikram Adhikari, Niraj Shrestha, Oshin Pandey, Prabisha Shrestha and Preeti Adhikary.
To qualify for this survey, you must be 18 years or older and first or second generation Nepali. Your participation is completely voluntary, and you can withdraw at any time. If you agree to participate in this study, you will fill out the Diaspora Mapping form which includes questions about demographic and location information and will take approximately 5 minutes to fill out.
There is no compensation for your time to fill out the survey, and participating in this survey may not benefit you directly. However, it will help the TGND team to create a repository of the diaspora members and support any future research and projects. You may find answering some of the questions to be personal or upsetting. If you do, you can skip them or quit the survey at any time.
If you have any questions about this study, please contact Preeti Adhikary (firstname.lastname@example.org).
