Research ethics in a changing social sciences landscape

Source: NBrown

I was asked to present my talk “Research ethics in a changing social sciences landscape” at the UCL Research Ethics Conference “Frontiers in Best Practice in Research Ethics” in September 2022. This is the recording from my talk, which was based upon a journal article. The article has now been published in Research Ethics and can be accessed here.

I begin with a brief outline of the changes we experience within the social sciences before exploring in more detail their impact on research ethics and the practices of research ethics committees. I conclude with recommendations for how the existing research ethics processes may be made more future-proof.
