CARVALHO, Isabel Cristina de Moura. Ethics and Education research: the necessary international dialogue. Práxis Educativa [online]. 2018, vol.13, n.1, pp.154-163. ISSN 1809-4309.

This work aims to present the recently published Brazilian edition of the book Ethics and Education research, written by Rachel Brooks (UK), Kitty te Riele (Australia) and Meg Maguire (UK), and start a dialogue with this work from the Brazilian context. The book in question is the result of a rigorous work, aimed at subsidizing decision-making and the choice of ethical procedures in the various situations involved in education research. The authors deal with the ethical perspective that is conceived as a reflexive attitude of care with the other, and therefore, the ethics in research is understood as the capacity to evaluate situations throughout the investigation and make decisions that take rights, well-being and expectations of the research participant into consideration. The authors do not ignore or disqualify the principlism perspective of Biomedical ethics, but they recognize the limits of the pretension of the universality of predetermined frameworks in relation to the variability of specific cultural contexts where research is conducted. The relevance of this publication in Brazil is related, in particular, to the scarcity of literature in the form of an authorial book that organically approaches the issues ranging from regulation to the dimension of ethics, as an intrinsic part of the researcher’s education. The book comes in good time, especially at this moment of the Brazilian scientific policy when we already have a regulation (Resolution No. 510/2016) focused on the specificity of the Social and Human Sciences. However, we are still experiencing an incomplete transition to stabilize appropriate parameters to this area of research. Openness to international dialogue, in this context, is fundamental for a more mature debate, the exchange of experiences with fellow researchers from other countries and the evaluation of other institutional models.
