Naturally, our interview questionnaire and accompanying material have been duly vetted and verified by the competent ethical committee, namely the Nazarbayev University Institutional Research Ethics Committee (email@example.com
). Following the standard protocol, before an interview is conducted, respondents will be asked for their permission to use the information they provide in an anonymous way, so that neither they nor their company can be identified. If they agree, they will be invited to sign together with the interviewer a standard informed consent form guaranteeing as much as possible the confidentiality of their answers. Needless to say, they remain free to respond or not respond to individual questions. The project is very much in its initial stages. More details will be provided on the pages of this website as it progresses.
