Global Code of Conduct for Research in Resource-Poor Settings

Research partnerships between high-income and lower-income settings can be highly advantageous for both parties. Or they can lead to ethics dumping, the practice of exporting unethical research practices to lower-income settings.

This Global Code of Conduct for Research in Resource-Poor Settings counters ethics dumping by:

providing guidance across all research disciplines

presenting clear, short statements in simple language to achieve the highest possible accessibility

Four Values, One Code

Fairness

Fairness (or justice) can have a number of interpretations but the most relevant concepts for collaborative research ethics are fairness in exchange, and corrective fairness. [...]

Respect

To show respect when engaging with communities requires an acceptance that their customs and cultures may be different from one's own. [...]

Care

Care has two main meanings. First, to be attached to something, to care about it and second, to look after or take care of something. [...]

Honesty

Honesty is a value that does not need complicated explanations or definitions. In all cultures and nations, 'do not lie' is a basic prerequisite for ethical human interaction. [...]

Resource Hub
