A number of organisations and researchers have published frameworks of ethical decision making to help finding the right decision in difficult situations. The following list contains a selection of such frameworks that have been specifically designed for either the military or humanitarian context.

Frameworks and tools for ethical decision making

  • BMA Armed Forces Ethics Toolkit
    "This tool kit signposts the kinds of ethical factors you need to take into consideration when making ethical decisions."
  • Humanitarian Health Ethics Analysis Tool (HHEAT)
    "HHEAT is an ethical analysis tool designed to help humanitarian healthcare workers make ethical decisions. This tool can be used in pre-departure training to work through common cases and scenarios, in the field when ethical issues arise, or in debriefing sessions after particularly difficult decisions."
