Wed 15 Sep 2021 |1:00pm - 2:00pm Irish Time Online

This event was organised in the past

The event has been recorded and you can watch the video below.

Come and join a conversation on the ethics of using images of children, within and from participatory research with children. While ethics have gained ever-increasing attention in childhood research, testing questions arise as we involve children in various roles within our projects: questions around ownership, consent and the legacy of images, particularly when images are shared through the internet and social media.

Our projects are working in different contexts worldwide, with children across a wide age range with a range of diverse characteristics. Children are involved in various ways, from advisory groups to undertaking research to being research participants. We will share some of our current dilemmas about using images of children and look forward to a discussion that will take our debates further and seek to identify ways forward.
