This report describes the findings of a short research project commissioned under the Scottish Executive Education Department's Sponsored Research Programme and conducted by Dr Julie Brownlie of the University of Stirling and Rachel Ormston and Simon Anderson of the Scottish Centre for Social Research.
The principal aim of this project to explore the problems and possibilities of incorporating a ‘children as researchers' perspective into the agenda of government social research in Scotland. In addition, it aimed to map existing or current initiatives in the UK, and in Scotland in particular, which involve young people as researchers; explore the views and perspectives of a range of a stakeholders, including researchers, research managers, policy makers and young people who had experience of carrying out the research; and to suggest possible ways of reconciling key tensions and developing resources in this area.
