Laying the Groundwork: A Practical Guide for Ethical Research with Indigenous Communities (Papers: Julia K. Riddell, et al)0

Posted by Admin in on May 16, 2017
 

Abstract
Although there are numerous ethical guidelines for research with Indigenous communities, not all research is conducted in an ethical, culturally respectful, and effective way. To address this gap, we review four ethical frameworks for research with Indigenous Peoples in Canada. Drawing upon our experiences conducting a transformative social justice research project in five Indigenous communities, we discuss the ethical tensions we have encountered and how we have attempted to address these challenges. Finally, drawing on these experiences, we make recommendations to support those planning to conduct research with Indigenous Peoples in Canada. We discuss the importance of training to highlight the intricacies and nuances of bringing the ethical guidelines to life through co-created research with Indigenous communities.

Social sciences lose out again in Common Rule reform (Papers: Robert Dingwall | 2017)0

Posted by Admin in on April 30, 2017
 

Abstract
The Common Rule’s incoherent approach to ethics regulation will change little in the way institutional review boards and researchers interact, says Robert Dingwall.

Ethical Imperialism? Exporting Research Ethics to the Global South (Books: Mark Israel | 2017)0

Posted by Admin in on March 21, 2017
 

Abstract:
The global export of principlism forms part of international flows of capital, students and academics, knowledge and ideology. Multinational research teams have looked to those countries with lower risks of litigation, low labour costs, pharmacologically ‘naive’ participants, weak ethics review and the absence of other regulatory processes. As a result, research in low- and middle-income countries has burgeoned. As developing countries struggle to keep pace, the Helsinki and UNESCO Declarations have created regulatory templates and ca pa city-building initiatives have encouraged researchers in many developing countries to follow these models. Contemporary regulation in South Africa and Brazil has shadowed developments in the global North and extended biomedical regulation to all forms of research. Opposition to principlism is not simply targeted at insensitivity in application but challenges the universal basis for principlism, and calls for a deeper understanding of how different societies, cultures, peoples and disciplines understand ethics, research and ethical research.
