  • Information


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.
