The Development Studies Association of Ireland (DSAI) and Irish Forum for Global Health (IFGH) supported the development and publication of the Student Guidelines for Ethical Fieldwork Overseas through collaboration with the DSAI Postgraduate Group and IFGH Student Outreach Group. 

The document is a practical guide developed for students, by students, on the ethical conduct of international fieldwork, inclusive of study and research placements. The guidelines have been developed using primary data generated from focused discussions, and facilitated workshops, as well as from an extensive document review and analysis of existing policies, statements, guidelines, codes, handbooks, and manuals on research ethics and practice within selected Irish Higher Education Institutions.
