C03 – Where Does Research Ethics Fit In? A panel Discussion of Emerging Issues

Research that involves human participants raises distinctive and often complex ethical, legal, social and political questions. Today we are challenged by issues that reflect global concerns in various areas, largely driven by a rapidly advancing technology landscape. The ways that we create and use knowledge has changed. Without flexibility, traditional approaches to research ethics will rapidly become obsolete in the face of technological advancements. Where does research ethics fit in and how can it respond to these changing paradigms? Join us in a lively discussion of expert panellists as we endeavour to think deeply and explore these important considerations.
