Bærøe, an associate professor in the Global Health Priorities reserach group has written one of the chapters in the newly released book "Etisk skjønn i forskning" ("Ethical judgement in research"). 

 

Institutional framwork

In her chapter Bærøe discusses how, and in what specific ways, research institutions ca provide opportunities for their scientific employees to exercise well-qualified, ethical judgement in their research? The article discusses (1) the level of research ethics competence that it is reasonable for society at large to expect researchers to possess; (2) the corresponding framework for development and maintenance of researchers' ethical competence that research institutions should be expected to implement; and (3) the research ethics responsibility that can thereby be ascribed to the leadership of research institutions. (From chapter abstract.)

 

The book

In the book, different ethical challenges that arise in research and in the relation between research, research evaluation and society. What can and should be attributed to ethical judgements? What is correct ethical judgement? These and many other questions are discussed and reflected upon in the anthology. The book is in Norwegian and is available as open access through Idunn.
