Another thorny question is how to extend the protections of the individual that were codified in the Belmont principles to the community.
Are the Belmont principles adequate to address the new facets of research that are entailed in community-engaged research?
To guide such an adaptation, I introduce three research methodologies (1)--decolonizing, participatory, and feminist--that specialize in work with underserved populations, as these approaches have a tradition of modifying the Belmont principles for community work.
However, several research ethics scholars have suggested that the Belmont principles are ill-suited to community-based research, especially as the concepts are currently applied by Institutional Review Boards (Brydon-Miller & Greenwood, 2006; Shore, 2007; Tuhiwai Smith, 1999).
