Abstract

When a researcher’s respondents find themselves in difficult circumstances, to what extent is the researcher morally obliged to help? While well-intended behaviour may affect the impartiality of data, a commitment to inaction can also bear on the relationship with the community. Emmanuel Akampurira addresses these debates drawing on recent fieldwork during the pandemic in Uganda.
