WILL YOU CONDUCT RESEARCH IN ANOTHER COUNTRY?

What you can expect from this situation?

You must provide additional information about the country where the research is being conducted to assure that your research is culturally appropriate. This information should verify that an in-country adviser or representative has been consulted to include documentation that the proposal has been reviewed by a research council or equivalent to determine cultural appropriateness.
