Dilemmas in the Regulation of Research Ethics: U.S.A. University Institutional Review Boards


v pondělí 15.října 2012 od 14 hodin, v zasedací místnosti SOÚ AV ČR, v.v.i., Jilská 1, Praha 1, 2. patro, místnost č. 207



Abstract: Because of serious ethical lapses in research practices, mainly involving biomedical research, the U.S. government requires that universities create Institutional Review Boards (IRBs).  These IRBs review and must approve all research that is proposed by university personnel.  However, the model for these review boards was based primarily on biomedical research and, to some extent on psychological research. In our presentation, we will discuss the situation that gave rise to the IRBs, the debates that accompanied their creation, and the continuing problem of “fit”  for social science research generally, and for qualitative research in particular.  We will conclude with some suggestions for the IRB review of more qualitative research.
