Researchers increasingly recognize the need for more racially disaggregated research and data, but the infrastructure for conducting this research in Canada remains under-developed, especially in politics. This talk will provide insights from two works in progress. First, I will discuss the mechanics of a collaborative project with Operation Black Vote Canada and provide early findings from a survey we conducted with Black Canadian candidates and officeholders. Second, I will introduce new work with Dr. Fan Lu and Dr. Debra Thompson, which aims to understand and improve measures of racial identity in survey research on politics. The talk will make a case not just for more research on race but better tools for doing that work.
