Abstract

There is a substantial academic literature on ethics in research with children and young people in low income or economically developing countries, emphasizing the need to be aware of special cultural and social considerations. However, considerations of culture and ethnicity are not particular to development studies. This article draws on examples from my own UK research with children, young people and families, alongside a wider academic literature, to reflect on the need to address ethics considerations in relation to culture and ethnicity when working within ethnically and culturally diverse societies.
