Issues in research with children and young people

Introduction

Many people express their opinions about the lives of children and young people, whether from first-hand experience of their own families, from working with children or engaging with accounts in the media. Research with children and young people offers different possibilities for investigating the reality of childhood in different contexts from the local to the global. This course considers various reasons for carrying out such research and investigates the possible influence of our own views and experiences of childhood and youth.
