Excerpt: Something must be done to protect the breadth and depth of the anthropological imagination that is seriously threatened by ever more generalising and standardising processes of ethical review (at multiple levels) in Australian universities. The effects of these processes extend well beyond the accepting or not of research ethics applications or the lost time and energy spent on long and often inappropriate forms. They impose rationalising structures and processes for what they have determined to be universal  ‘best research practice’ that often block creativity, adversely affect social relations in the ‘field’, and limit rather than enhance the researcher’s sensitivity to different ways and means of being ethical.
