Main Description

This book is a collection of fictionalised case studies of everyday ethical dilemmas and challenges, encountered in the process of conducting global health research in places where the effects of global, political and economic inequality are particularly evident. It is a training tool to fill the gap between research ethics guidelines, and their implementation 'on the ground'. The case studies, therefore, focus on 'relational' ethics: ethical actions and ideas that emerge through relations with others, rather than in regulations.


This is a flexible resource for training across a variety of contexts, such as medical research organisations, universities, collaborative sites, and NGOs.

"This wonderful little book uses a series of compelling stories to prompt reflection and discussion on everyday ethics in transnational research... People working in a range of field research, clinical, and academic settings will find the book irreplaceable."
