MERETI-Network is closely following the uprisings across the region. We are interested in potential changes to scientific research, research ethics and science in general as a result of the overthrow of dictatorial regimes. Starting with Tunisia, where the first revolt occurred, we will be following the chronological order of uprisings in the region. Egypt is next on the list then Libya and so on. MERETI-Network will be dedicating a week for each country. We will be posting and commenting on articles regarding the effects of regime change on research and research ethics. MERETI-Network members are welcome to share ideas and articles they find relevant to the topic.
