How is the normative, institutionalized approach to research ethics within universities relevant (or not) in the context of doing work that is committed to decolonization and to revealing the operations of power within settler and colonial nation-states? Rubén Gaztambide-Fernández from University of Toronto and Leila Angod from Bielefeld University address the dilemmas of creating the ethical conditions for research that aims to decolonize by disinvesting from settler institutions and practices while remaining accountable to Indigenous sovereignty. They make a case for employing a differentiated approach to research ethics that depends on the purpose as well as the object of research and the communities that researchers engage.
