A key purpose of ERIC is to share stories, experiences and learning about ethical issues and concerns that shape research involving children and young people. Case studies have been contributed by researchers, using their own words, to assist others to reflect critically on some of the more difficult and contested ethical issues they may encounter. These case studies which are from diverse international contexts and different research paradigms highlight the processes that can be engaged in developing ethical thinking and improving ethical practice in research with children. Researchers are invited to consider these case studies in light of their own experience and context.
We warmly welcome further case study contributions where these clearly provide examples of ethical issues and challenges arising in research involving children. Please contact us via the contact form (on the contact page) to discuss your suggested contribution.
