Event Description

Research historically has taken advantage of the most vulnerable populations, leading to stricter legal and ethical research guidelines. Still, there are many grey areas in the responsible and ethical conduct of research that remain problematic and unresolved. Are incarcerated individuals truly able to make informed and un-coerced choices about participating in research? This session explores the ethical principles and policies surrounding the conduct of research with incarcerated individuals, and what factors may make research with this population either fair or coercive.
