The Ethical Matrix: Facilitating research and ethical engagement

There is a growing trend for scientists (and others) to engage in ethical discussions and wider reflection about their work. For academics interested in questions of science governance, the question of ethical reflection represents an interesting topic for empirical study. It also represents an opportunity to actually create structures to embed this kind of practice.

Developed at the Centre for Applied Bioethics in 2000, the Ethical Matrix has been developed to provide a structure for ethical engagement. It has been used around the world by different researchers on a number of projects.
