Justice

Justice

Justice is one of the three core principles of ERIC (along with benefit and respect). The principle of justice requires researchers to attend to the power differences inherent in the adult/child research relationship; to find a balance between who receives the benefits from the research and who bears its burdens, and it must underpin decisions about ‘which’ children will be included/excluded from research. Children should always be treated fairly and the benefits of research distributed equitably.
