Revising Our Ethics?, Apr 19

Mon, 02/27/2017 - 17:22
The SAA’s Committee on Ethics (COE) has been charged with revising the original 8 Principles (as established in 1991) as follows: “The current Principles of Ethics focuses on obligations to the archaeological record rather than to other communities. The Board charges the COE to review the current Principles and consider whether it should be expanded to address the ethical obligations of archaeologists to other stakeholders, individuals and communities”. The current COE has been working on this charge and, not surprisingly, has found that this is not merely a matter of adding a few phrases to the end of each Principle.
This presentation will present a short history of establishing ethics by the SAA, and where the COE is at this point in the revisions process. Input from the audience is desired! Following the talk, there will be an open discussion on suggestions about revisions of the ethics principles.
