Justice concerns in HPSR: Identifying ethical responsibilities towards positive transformation – Thematic Working Group on Ethics and Justice

This session will share new literature on justice concerns in HPSR and discuss progress and possibilities for contributing to positive change as funders, researchers, research ethics committee members, journal editors and policymakers. Discussions will draw on the rich justice literature from political philosophy and public health ethics, and on recent decolonisation discussion, to consider implications for individuals, institutions and collaborations.
