    Photographs are commonly taken of children in medical and research contexts. With the increased availability of photographs through the internet, it is increasingly important to consider their potential for negative consequences and the nature of any consent obtained. In this research we explore the issues around photography in low-resource settings, in particular concentrating on the challenges in gaining informed consent.

    "That's Africa": Acceptance as a Form of Negligence.D. Devakumar - 2008 - Journal of Medical Ethics 34 (9):683-683.
    “That’s Africa”, or words to that effect, have been directed at me a number of times recently as some form of justification of things not working. Africa is broken and we have to work with what we have got, is the idea. Is this acceptance of the way things are a way of surviving and working in difficult environments or is it actually wrong and medically negligent to accept substandard practice? In many ways, this dilemma can be applied to any (...)

    The Human Dimensions of Water Saving Irrigation: Lessons Learned From Chinese Smallholder Farmers.Morey Burnham, Zhao Ma & Delan Zhu - 2015 - Agriculture and Human Values 32 (2):347-360.
    Water saving irrigation is promoted as a strategy to mitigate future water stresses by the Chinese government and irrigation scientists. However, the dissemination of WSI in China has been slow and little is understood with respect to why farmers adopt WSI or how WSI interacts with the social and institutional contexts in which it is embedded. By analyzing qualitative data from 37 semi-structured and 56 unstructured interviews across 13 villages in northwest China, this paper examines smallholder farmers’ knowledge and perceptions (...)
