There is a significant body of literature concerning ethical issues in undertaking research with children and young people. It covers a broad range of ethical issues, concerning both the nature and underlying principles of ethical research and the mechanisms which are in place to facilitate this. A key focus of the literature is critical reflection on ethics in research practice, with clear demand from researchers for further development in this area.
