Research and evaluation has increasingly been undertaken in the not-for-profit sector (NFP) in recent decades. As NFP research and evaluation has evolved, practitioners working in the field have found themselves facing a number of challenges. One of these is ensuring that their research and evaluation processes are ethical.
The aim of this guide by WESTIR Ltd is to help NFP organisations and professionals understand what they need to consider to ensure that their research and evaluation processes are ethical. The guide also provides an ‘ethics checklist’ developed by WESTIR Ltd to help NFP professionals put these value-based judgements into practice throughout their research and evaluation processes.
