INVOLVING CHILDREN AND YOUNG PEOPLE IN RESEARCH: WHAT NEEDS TO BE CONSIDERED AND WHY?


Dr Kate Bishop 
Date: Friday, 10th December 2010
Venue: Seminar Room, Faculty of Built Environment

Participatory research with children and young people has increased dramatically in the last 15-20 years.  Previously, children’s research largely consisted of research on children rather than withthem as is common today. This change reflected a new respect for, and understanding of, childhood as a distinct social period in its own right and not simply a step along the way to adulthood. Researchers became interested in understanding this period of life from children’s perspectives, recognising that they themselves would always be outsiders as adults.
