An honest exploration of the ethical dimensions of human rights work.

Human rights work takes place everywhere, every day, and in every way, but good intentions don’t always bring the intended results. Messy Ethics in Human Rights Work invites readers to engage in a series of overlapping conversations about the complex messiness of ethics in practice, and the implications for human rights work in academia and beyond. Contributors share their ethical dilemmas. How do they evaluate a situation and the ways to resolve it? Where do or don’t they seek guidance? What might they do differently? This thoughtful work proposes that personal reflection and sometimes uncomfortable discussion are essential components of critical human rights practice.
