What if the social and behavioral research being conducted causes harm to the very people the research is trying to help?
Social and behavioral research can provide data to help bring services to especially vulnerable populations, such as refugees. However, it is essential that this research does not cause harm in the process. To do so, it is important that research is designed and conducted in a manner that is sensitive to its potential ethical pitfalls.
