AAA to revise ethics statement
With Lisa Wynn currently indisposed doing fieldwork in Egypt, I am continuing the HTS thread with news that the AAA’s executive has decided to revise its ethics statement. This decision has followed a long review process since November 2007 which has apparently involved a lot of input from AAA membership.
This is a very significant decision, which will have implications for the conduct of Applied Anthropology. We wait with interest to see exactly what form these revisions take and we will post updates as they arise.
More information, including the text of the letter sent to AAA members can be found at the AAA Public Affairs blog.
