The American Anthropological Association plans to undergo an extensive review of their Code of Ethics over the next three years, according to a press release. In the last year, a debate has arisen over rules relating to secret research and government work in war zones, but the review will cover the entire set of rules. “The new code is subject to approval by the Executive Board before being submitted for approval to the AAA membership by e-mail ballot,” the release reads. The consultation period should last at least six months and will be followed by a report to the Executive Board by Nov. 15, 2010.
