The research team involved in the ‘Tackling ethical issues’ research project also produced a set of UK-based case studies, case examples and commentaries for use by researchers and students. Examples of ethical issues arising in research projects from community archaeology, through youth peer research to permaculture are included, with exercises and commentaries from researchers in different countries.
Since 2013, CSJCA has continued to collect cases from both the UK and internationally. These are particularly useful in teaching/training and in helping research partners in planning and thinking through the ethical dimensions of their projects. Case studies are about ethical issues arising in a CBPR project overall, whereas case examples are written from the perspective of an individual involved in a project.
