This paper explores the concept of ethico-onto-epistemology and its contributions to education policy research. Specifically, it seeks to define onto-epistemology and ethical-onto-epistemology, with special reference to Anna Stetsenko’s work. The main arguments developed are the following: a) ethics is one of the structuring elements of research (and not a mere appendix); b) all research involves ethical issues; c) the ethico-onto-epistemological perspective can contribute to the development of more integrated and coherent research; and d) the transformative activist stance contributes to achieving the social purpose of the research and the researcher’s work.
