Research Methods in Public Administration
What are your initial thoughts on these studies?
After watching the three vides, what came into my mind was the ignorance the
researchers had when planning the study. From the three videos, it’s evident that oppression and
ignorance of the human rights was what transpired. For instance, in the Stanford prison
experiment, the prisoners were subjected to an environment which no one would want to live in

the participants had to live with for the rest of their lives. For the Tuskegee study, the
participants still felt the pain as they talked about the experiment. The Tuskegee study violated
basic bioethical principles of respect for autonomy, justice, and nonmaleficence. The participants

them. The experiments therefore subjected the participants to both physical and mental torture
which is a thing I would never expect a sane human being to do.
Should these types of studies be allowed to occur "for the sake of scientific inquiry"?

not wise to carry out an experiment and at the same time endanger the life of another person.
Should we attempt to replicate them today?

The process that should be used should be that which ensures consent in that the individual
