Consent Form

ADULT (18 or older)

I am aware that my participation is voluntary and I am free to participate in the research

project titled “Human Rights, Peace Education and Conflict Resolution: The Role of NGOs,

Civil Society, Social Movements in Social Transformation” being conducted by Reynaldo R. Ty,

a Doctoral candidate at Northern Illinois University. I have been informed that the goal of this

inquiry is to investigate the role, experiences, perceptions of and social issues that affect popular

educators actively involved in civil society, non-governmental organizations, and social

movements to bring about social change in order to construct a grounded model which will

explain the phenomenon.

I understand that if I agree to participate in this study, I will be asked to do the following:

(1) take part in an hour-long one-on-one interview; and (2) share my writings or published

articles about my volunteer social-work efforts that promote social change.

I am aware that my participation is voluntary and I am free to decide not to participate or

to withdraw at any time without penalty or prejudice, and that if I have any additional questions

concerning this study, I may contact Reynaldo R. Ty at (815) 753-1098 or Dr. Jorge Jeria at

(815) 753-9375. I understand that if I wish further information regarding my rights as a research

subject, I may contact the Office of Research Compliance at Northern Illinois University at (815)

753-8524. People, such as you, who are publicly known for your volunteer work in non-

governmental organizations, are invited to take part in this research.

As my volunteer work is public information, I decide to have all information gathered

during this study to be made public, as I want to publicize all my voluntary social-action-related

1
activities that promote positive social change so that I can inspire more people to do volunteer

work. I understand that there are no known risks or discomforts associated with this study.

By participating in this research, I will benefit in the following ways: (1) to gain

knowledge about the larger picture of the role of people in civil society engaged in social

transformation work, (2) to have the opportunity to participate in a qualitative participatory

action research study that produces a grounded theory, and (3) to have my name and my

volunteer work, which are already publicly recognized, mentioned in the research papers.

I understand that my consent to participate in this project does not constitute a waiver of

any legal rights or redress I might have as a result of my participation, and I acknowledge that I

have received a copy of this consent form.
