Title Group compromise: perfect cases make problematic generalizations
Date 2010-01-01
Description Rothstein argues that groups may be harmed by research on deidentified data. He concludes that researchers are obligated to minimize group harms and demonstrate respect for a studied group through robust opt-out capacities, information about the possibility of group-based harms, and publications referencing the group that reflect "extraordinary caution and precision." Like other commentators, Rothstein uses as a touchstone example for group harm the research at Arizona State University involving the Havasupai. The Havasupai contended that research originally intended for diabetes, a significant health problem for them, was extended without permission to mental illness and migratory patterns-the latter challenging critical cultural traditions. The tribe's lawsuit was recently settled on published terms that included payment of $700,000 to 41 individual plaintiffs, benefits for the tribe such as telemedicine, and scholarships for tribal members to several Arizona universities (1).
