Ethics Dumping : Case Studies from North-South Research Collaborations Paperback / softback
Edited by Doris Schroeder, Julie Cook, Inserm, Solveig Fenet, Vasantha Muthuswamy
Part of the SpringerBriefs in Research and Innovation Governance series
This open access book provides original, up-to-date case studies of "ethics dumping" that were largely facilitated by loopholes in the ethics governance of low and middle-income countries.
It is instructive even to experienced researchers since it provides a voice to vulnerable populations from the fore mentioned countries.
Ensuring the ethical conduct of North-South collaborations in research is a process fraught with difficulties.
The background conditions under which such collaborations take place include extreme differentials in available income and power, as well as a past history of colonialism, while differences in culture can add a new layer of complications.
In this context, up-to-date case studies of unethical conduct are essential for research ethics training.
