Ethical Currents
Case Studies

Joe Watkins, Contributing Editor

The primary mission of the AAA Committee on Ethics is to educate the Association’s membership on ethical issues within anthropology. As part of this mission, the Committee on Ethics provides case studies on how to approach ethical dilemmas in the discipline.  We  welcome your comments on the scenarios posted here.  Comments, unless you indicate otherwise, will be automatically reviewed for possible posting on this Web page and publication in Anthropology News, although we reserve the right to select and edit letters.

Additionally, students and teachers alike are welcome to submit case studies for use by the Committee. Send comments and cases to Stacy Lathrop,
