Ethics

Ethics is not a simple subject to assess, however, we try to ensure our research does no harm and maximumgGood. In line with recommendations from the Research Councils we submit all projects that might impact on individuals taking part in the research to a system of impartial ethical review. The primary role of this review is to protect the dignity, rights and welfare of research participants.

You can find out more about the recommendations on this site on the ESRC Research Ethics Framework (PDF: Reader)

In addition, we are dedicated to teaching Ethics across our programmes.We hope our students leave us with a developed sense of place, difference, and tolerance for others, and with the ability to reflect intelligently on potential risks and the moral/ethical issues involved in their work.
