Report Summary: Researching with children and young people is important, for them, and for adults in their environment. By involving children in research, we discover more about their ideas. Children who are involved in research, gain knowledge which they can use to improve their environment. They also improve several capabilities. The Convention of the Rights of the Child states that children have the right to be involved in decisions and have the right to obtain information.
Research with and by children leads to various ethical questions. In this brochure, we offer concrete tools to handle ethical dilemma’s in social research. No final solutions, but the dialogue on ehtics is an important starting point: among researchers, but also among researchers and children.
