All research raises questions about ethics: about the rigour, responsibility and respect of the practices of researchers. As a result, there are strict systems in place to encourage and enforce ethical practice. However, some kinds of research create specific challenges, which may not be adequately addressed by institutional frameworks for ethical conduct in research.
This is particularly the case with participatory research, where the boundaries between researchers and ‘research subjects’ begin to blur.
This guide focuses on the lessons learned by people working intensively in this area- and provides a useful resource for anyone interested in developing more participatory approaches to their research.
