Ethical questions are at the centre of research with children and young people. This clear and practical text informs students and researchers about the relevant laws and guidelines and current debates in research ethics. Priscilla Alderson and Virginia Morrow cover ethics at every stage of research, and with all kinds of young research participants, particularly those who are vulnerable or neglected. They break down the process of research into ten stages, each with its own set of related questions and problems, and they show how these need to be addressed.

This practical book is essential reading for anyone who conducts or reviews research with children or young people.

Priscilla Alderson is Emerita Professor of Childhood Studies at the Institute of Education University of London.

Virginia Morrow is Senior Research Officer in the Department of International Development, University of Oxford.
