In post-disaster housing research this can be categorised into three aspects; the occupants/users of the facilities, the type of building/structure provided for the victims, and the kind of environment which it is situated. The paper reviewed various ethical consideration of research in post-disaster housing. The research approach adopted for this study was based on an in-depth literature review. The study examined different code of ethics, conduct and literary standards and how it relates to research in post-disaster housing, because literature on the post-disaster housing research repetitively reveals ethical questions, conflicting values, and ambiguity in decision-making. The research concludes that there is lack of clarity in ethical standard in post-disaster housing research and encourages researchers, professionals, and government agencies to develop more awareness and efficient framework in postdisaster housing research to address the issues of human rights. It recommended that research ethics must receive special attention in the post-disaster housing studies. Any form of criticism should be attended to and not suppressed
