|Title:||An Analytical Tool to Help Researchers Develop Partnerships with Children and Adolescents||Authors:||Shier, Harry||Permanent link:||http://hdl.handle.net/10197/12058||Date:||2019||Online since:||2021-03-23T10:11:53Z||Abstract:||All researchers whose research involves children and adolescents have decisions to make about how and when to engage with those involved in and/or affected by their research; who to engage with and who to leave out. This paper offers a tool that researchers can use to help them address these issues in a purposeful and ethical way. The paper discusses earlier work on child-rights-based approaches to research which influenced the approach taken here. However the main inspiration for the proposal was the author’s own research with children working on coffee plantations in Nicaragua; in particular the Transformative Research by Children and Adolescents methodology that was used, and the critical reflection on method¬ology prompted by this experience. The tool is presented as a matrix which can be used for planning and designing, as well as evaluating research. It seeks to foster coherent critical thinking around three related dimensions: At what stage in a research process should researchers seek to engage with children and adolescents? What type of engagement is appropriate, particularly in relation to the sharing of decision-making power? And finally who is included in the process and who is excluded? The matrix is used to carry out a reappraisal of a recent research project by the author, showing how this analysis can shed light on a number of issues that might not otherwise be given sufficient attention.||Type of material:||Book Chapter||Publisher:||Information Age||Start page:||295||End page:||315||Keywords:||Children in research; Adolescents; Participation; Children's rights; Research methodologies; Nicaragua||Other versions:||https://www.amazon.co.uk/Participatory-Methodologies-Childrens-Research-Advocacy/dp/1641135468||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Peer reviewed||Is part of:||Berson, I., Berson, M., Gray, C.
