Fiona Bannon Mind the GapSteps Towards Ethical Practice (stEP)
To embark on any discussion of ethics; an idea with no fixed identity, offering no universal givens, and existing in complex relations between people can encourage our use of doctrinary constructs. As we embark upon research projects we need to learn ways to accommodate the constancy of change in relation with the context we work in, the ideas we explore and those we work alongside. Ethical relations are lively; they exist beyond any written and approved plan and any institutional protocol for research. This is where ethics become interesting, this is where we have research practice and behaviour to explore.
