Unraveling Ethics: Reflections from a Community-Based Participatory Research Project with Youth
Walsh, Christine A.; Hewson, Jennifer; Shier, Michael; Morales, Edwin
Qualitative Report, v13 n3 p379-393 Sep 2008
There is limited literature describing the ethical dilemmas that arise when conducting community-based participatory research. The following provides a case example of ethical dilemmas that developed during a multi-method community-based participatory action research project with youth in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. Several ethical dilemmas emerged during the course of the study related to the community in which the research was being undertaken, the recruitment of participants, and the overall research process. As important are possible harms that may arise when the researcher is no longer involved. These ethical dilemmas and potential solutions are discussed in relation to social work research and community-based practice to raise awareness about the essential role of community in informing ethical research practices.
