AAA is committed to helping all anthropologists have access to quality information regarding methodological and ethical best practices. The Association’s Principles of Professional Responsibility include:

  1. Do No Harm
  2. Be Open and Honest Regarding Your Work
  3. Obtain Informed Consent and Necessary Permissions
  4. Weigh Competing Ethical Obligations Due Collaborators and Affected Parties
  5. Make Your Results Accessible
  6. Protect and Preserve Your Records
  7. Maintain Respectful and Ethical Professional Relationships

Each of these principles is more fully defined in the full AAA Statement On Ethics (2012). The Association has also established a Policy on Sexual Harassment and Sexual Assault.

The Members’ Programmatic, Advisory and Advocacy Committee (MPAAC) regularly updates the AAA Ethics Forum, which contains discussions and case studies of use to the discipline. Contributions are always welcome for consideration.

Have an ethical conundrum that could use insight from a group of AAA Ethics scholars? The AAA Ethics Advisory Group consists of Association members who have served AAA in leadership roles related to ethics. The group responds to queries submitted via AAAEthicsFeedback@gmail.com. Note that the Ethics Advisory Group is not an adjudicating body.
