[About the book]:

How should the researcher approach the sensitive subject of the child? What are the ethical issues involved in researching children's experiences? In essays written by a collection of key international authors, Researching Children's Experience addresses these questions, and examines up-to-date methodological and conceptual approaches to researching children. This book serves as a practical, comprehensive, and interdisciplinary guide for advanced students and researchers exploring a range of studies, and the theoretical and ethical motivations behind them.
