“This Handbook explains the values and principles that guide processes and practices of research involving human participants at the University of the South Pacific.

We believe this handbook provides some useful guidance about responsibility to the region

The ethical values and principles described here apply to all University activities, to all its staff and student researchers including those visiting for short periods, and to any research agreements or partnerships that the University establishes.
.
The University’s human ethics will be compliant with the laws of individual University member states, particularly in relation to privacy, confidentiality, ownership, intellectual property requirements, research permit requirements and human rights.”
