About the ‘Being Black and Brown in Bioethics’ Study
This study is being conducted as part of an IME-funded research project at the University of Bristol’s Centre for Ethics of Medicine, in collaboration with researchers from the University of Oxford’s Ethox Centre and the Black and Brown in Bioethics network. This study aims to understand the experiences of postgraduate researchers from minoritised ethnic backgrounds working in UK bioethics, by investigating whether and to what extent they are affected by (in)direct racism. The study also aims to identify possible strategies for reducing racial inequity in bioethics. The study has been reviewed and approved by the University of Bristol Faculty of Health Sciences Research Ethics Committee (ref: 15169).
