Critical Commentary

AO: This book is a collection of fictionalized case studies highlighting everyday ethical dilemmas and challenges often encountered in the process of conducting global health research in Africa. The authors intend for this to be a training tool to fill the gap between research ethics guidelines and their implementation "on the ground". The case studies focus on the everyday or "relational" ethics: ethical actions and ideas that emerge through relations with others in context, rather than in universal principles or abstract regulations.
