What ethical dilemmas face researchers who work with young children?
Researching Young Children’s Perspectives critically examines the challenges and complexities of rights based, participatory research with children. Rather than approaching these dilemmas as problematic issues, this book positions them as important topics for discussion and reflection.
Drawing from their own rich experiences as research collaborators with young children in internationally diverse settings, the authors consider the ethical, methodological and theoretical frameworks that guide best-practice in research with young children. Each chapter poses points for consideration that will inform and challenge both the novice and experienced researcher, such as:
How ‘participatory’ can research be with infants under eighteen months?
When should listening through observation stand alone?
What is the distinction between methodologies and methods?
How can all young children be assured of a voice in research?
The authors also present seven separate case studies which demonstrate exemplary research with young children. Each study is accompanied by insightful commentary from the authors, who highlight the issues or difficulties faced and propose potential solutions.
If you are a student at undergraduate level and above, this book will give you all the confidence you need to conduct your own high quality research with children.

In 2011, an article in The Age accused Detective Paul Dale of nodding ?off for a quick power nap ? while a notorious gangland figure escaped from the back of an armed robbery squad car in 1990. Only problem was that Paul Dale was never an armed robbery squad detective, and in 1990 was a 20-year-old junior constable, nowhere near the gangland action. But in Dale ?s case, the media have never let the truth get in the way of a good story. From the moment police informer Terry Hodson pointed the finger at Dale to try and weasel his way out of a life sentence on serious drug charges, the Victoria Police have pursued Dale with a vigour rarely seen. Offering millions of dollars to ?witnesses ? in return for statements, the Victoria Police have yet to convict the former decorated police officer with a single thing. For the first time, Paul Dale tells his side of the story. When you look at the story behind the story, it is almost beyond belief.
