Atkinson, Paul Anthony 2009. Ethics and ethnography. Twenty-First Century Society: Journal of the Academy of Social Sciences 4 (1) , pp. 17-30. 10.1080/17450140802648439

The discussion continues from a paper by Robert Dingwall in this journal on the ethical regulation of social research. This paper focuses exclusively on the conduct of ethnographic research. Here it is argued that current practice of ethical review is itself sociologically and anthropologically impoverished. Ethnographic field research does not merely pose practical problems in relation to anticipatory regulation, but also exposes the inadequate understanding of social life embedded in the assumptions of contemporary regulatory regimes.
