I'm presently also working on several papers in the area of research ethics:
1. 'Research, non-negligent harm and justice: Implications for research ethics committees'
This paper argues that the present UK practice of not providing insurance for research participants who suffer non-negligent harm in the course of research is unethical and ethics committees ought to collectively refuse to approve risky research without this cover.
2. 'Who’s not your daddy? Discovering non-paternity in the course of genetic research, the ethical issues.
This paper examines the ethical issues that arise when you discover non-paternity in the course of genetic research. I am co-authoring this paper with Phillipa Malpas at the University of Auckland.
