Ethical questions are at the centre of research with children and young people. This revised and updated practical handbook, by Priscilla Alderson from the Institute of Education, and Virginia Morrow, Senior Research Officer with Young Lives, gives a comprehensive and accessible overview of the relevant laws, guidelines and current debates in research ethics. The authors cover ethics at every stage of research, and with all kinds of young research participants, particularly those who are vulnerable or neglected. They break down the process of research into 10 stages, each with its own related questions and problems. and they show how these need to be addressed.
