Principles and Guidelines for Ethical Research and Evaluation
The Principles and Guidelines provide overarching direction and practical support for the design, implementation and utilisation of research and evaluation in international development settings.
The Principles, originally published in 2013, are relevant to anyone who commissions, manages, conducts or reviews research and evaluation, particularly in relation to poverty reduction, development and social justice. The Guidelines, originally published in 2015, function as an applied tool in support of ethical research in theory and practice and draw from the principles and obligations of the ACFID Code of Conduct.
Consolidated into a single, user-friendly toolkit in 2016 by the RDI Network and ACFID – and updated in line with the new ACFID Code of Conduct in 2017 – the Principles and Guidelines for Ethical Research and Evaluation in Development are an essential resource for all researchers and practitioners seeking to implement ethical research practice.
