Abstract: Community engagement is an increasingly common component of scientific research, policy-making, ethical review, and technology design. Drawing on a growing consensus about the importance of community representation and participation for ethical research, a number of research institutions and funding bodies now promote, or even mandate, community engagement. Many researchers have also taken these normative expectations to heart, integrating diverse community engagement activities into their research practices. The increasing interest in and emphasis on community engagement can also be seen in the explosion of published articles over the last 30 years describing engagement activities across a wide variety of research areas. These include, to name only a small selection of a vast and growing literature: pandemic prevention and malaria control (e.g. Garrett, Vawter, Prehn, et al., 2009), genetics and genomics (e.g. Felt & Fochler, 2010), nanotechnology (e.g. Delgado, Kjølberg, & Wickson, 2010), patient advocacy (e.g. Rabeharisoa, Moreira, & Akrich,2014), mental health (e.g. Campbell & Cornish, 2010), HIV prevention (e.g. Koen, Essack, Slack, et al., 2013), and biobanks (e.g. Papaioannou, 2011). It could be said that the ethos of community engagement and participation has become something of a zeitgeist in scientific research in recent decades.
