Kate Coddington, a Postdoctoral Research Associate in the Department of Geography at Durham University, reviews Values and Vulnerabilities: The Ethics of Research with Refugees and Asylum Seekers. The book examines the ethical complications that come with researching refugees and aslyum seekers, and deals with both general ethical principles and practical decision making. It specifically tackles issues ranging from vulnerability, power and representation issues, to debates about credibility and bias when the lines between academic and advocacy work are unclear.
