Children and young people

Research output: Contribution to Book/ReportChapterpeer-review


In the context of expanding, and increasingly diverse, geographical research with children and young people, this chapter:
• summarises some key ethical considerations for geographers working with children and young people, particularly focusing on heightened issues relating to informed consent, confidentiality and avoiding harm;
• considers some new and shifting ethical complexities which geographers working with children and young people must consider, but which do not yet figure prominently in existing guidance;
• provides three case studies to prompt reflection upon some practical, real-life and fairly commonplace ethical complexities of conducting research with children and young people.
