Chapter 1 – Introduction: Overview of the book

Busher, Hugh and Fox, Alison (2019). Chapter 1 – Introduction: Overview of the book. In: Busher, Hugh and Fox, Alison eds. Implementing Ethics in Educational Ethnography: Regulation and Practice. London: Routledge, pp. 1–16.



This chapter sets the scene for this book in two complementary ways. The first part of this chapter explains the different ways that one can make sense of the different approaches to ethics in research and how these different approaches relate to each other. The second part of the chapter looks at some of the different themes that are discussed in the chapters, linking them to the main questions that the papers on which these chapters are founded tried to address in two sessions of the Special Interest Group on Ethnographic Research at the European Conference on Educational Research in 2017. The chapter concludes by giving a brief digest of each of the chapters in this book.
