As we develop a research question and a methodology, we also need to consider the ethics of our research. Research ethics is all about respecting the people involved in our research project, in order to keep them safe and to protect their dignity and well-being.

In this video, the fourth in our human geography research fundamentals series, human geographer Prof. Sarah Dyer helps us to think about what ethical considerations we need to make when conducting research.
