AbstractThe article comments on the upsurge of concern about the development of ethical anxiety in anthropology in Great Britain. This has been reflected in the concerns of the Association of Social Anthropology (ASA) with its development of its own ethical guidelines, written as a professional code of conduct for the research process. The current ethical guidelines of the ASA is successful in orienting researchers in the field. The ethical challenges facing anthropology are entangled in institutional and political structures which extend beyond the dialogical relationships of fieldwork.
