Code of Practice of the British Universities Industrial Relations Association

Impact: Attitudes and behaviours, Awareness and understanding


This Code of Practice puts forward (1) principles that underlie the professional
responsibilities and conduct of BUIRA members, and (2) enforced ethical standards
that apply to BUIRA members in official roles in the association and to those
participating in BUIRA-sponsored activities. The purpose of the Code is to provide a
guide for members regarding behaviour and provides scope for powers to investigate
breaches of the Code and implement relevant sanctions where necessary. BUIRA
members perform many roles, acting as researchers, educators, administrators,
supervisors, commentators, activists and social interventionists who maintain a
personal and professional lifelong commitment to ethical standards of behaviour, and
encouraging those they come in contact with, such as colleagues, students,
supervisees, collaborators, professional contacts, employees and employers, to
behave ethically.
