Ethical issues when conducting research in developing countries
Thu 4 May 2017, 12:00 – 14:00 BST
The ethical principles of conducting research are the same everywhere. Conducting research in developing country contexts raises additional ethical issues linked to power differentials, relative deprivation and exploitation. In this session we will reflect upon a range of issues and questions, from research funding and design to conduct and impact. Who benefits from the research? What are the implications of (in)compatible ethical guidelines of international bodies and individual countries? What are the implications of context-specific issues of consent? What are the implications of research partnerships in developing countries? We encourage participants to bring their own research projects and examples, experiences, questions and concerns to the session.
