Jane will give a speech about Young Children’s Voices in Research.
In this presentation, Jane considers how the international rights of young children aged 0-8 to express their views about matters affecting them - and have them respected - may be realised through different elements of research. Jane discusses ways that young children are positioned in research and the nature of research methodologies with potential to gather young children’s views.
