Research in disasters is thought to lead to improvements in disaster relief and better understanding of how disasters impact populations. Recent emphasis on disaster research has spurred expanded discussion regarding the ethical implications of this field of inquiry. We are conducting a new study, entitled Investigating Researchers’ Experience of Ethics in Post-Disaster Research, to investigate the kinds of ethical issues faced by researchers operating in post-disaster settings, and the extent to which current resources, such as ethics guidelines, appropriately address those issues.
