An ethic of ethics in research?: Reflecting on guidelines for indigenous populations in colonised societies


The ethics review processes in two universities in Melbourne are compared, particularly how Indigenous research proposals are assessed using the NMHRC Guidelines and the Values and Ethics: Guidelines for Ethical Conduct in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Research. The procedures for ethical review are examined and people from ethics committees are interviewed to gain insight into the fact that guidelines used with the formal ethics process, have improved the review system.
