About this item

Forensic anthropologists are confronted with ethical issues as part of their education, research, teaching, professional development, and casework. Despite the many ethical challenges that may impact forensic anthropologists, discourse and training in ethics are limited. The goal for Ethics and Professionalism in Forensic Anthropology is to outline the current state of ethics within the field and to start a discussion about the ethics, professionalism, and legal concerns associated with the practice of forensic anthropology.

This volume addresses:

  • The need for professional ethics
  • Current ethical guidelines applicable to forensic anthropologists and their means of enforcement
  • Different approaches to professionalism within the context of forensic anthropology, including issues of scientific integrity, qualifications, accreditation and quality assurance
  • The use of human subjects and human remains in forensic anthropology research
  • Ethical and legal issues surrounding forensic anthropological casework, including: analytical notes, case reports, peer review, incidental findings, and testimony
  • Harassment and discrimination in science, anthropology, and forensic anthropology
