*NEW!* Published: Ethics in Participatory Research for Health and Social Well-Being. Get your discount code!
Participatory research presents unique ethical challenges. Sarah Banks from the Executive Committee of the International Collaboration for Participatory Health Research and Mary Brydon-Miller have just published a collection of cases and commentaries shedding light on the many issues involved:
Ethics in participatory research for health and social well-being: Cases and commentaries, edited by Sarah Banks and Mary Brydon-Miller (Abingdon, Routledge).
This builds on the substantial body of work undertaken in recent years by the Centre for Social Justice and Community Action, Durham University, UK and ICPHR, providing a welcome resource for participatory researchers. The book introduces the key ethical issues in participatory research, drawing on ethical theory and relevant literature before presenting seven substantive chapters, each on a different theme, such as power, ownership, confidentiality and boundaries. The chapters feature an introductory overview of the topic with reference to the literature, followed by four real-life case examples written by participatory researchers and short commentaries on each case. Drawn from around the world (from Denmark to Tanzania), the cases illustrate a range of ethical issues, outlining how they were handled and the reflections and feelings of the contributors.
