Abstract

A considerable amount of research is being conducted among the youth population today, a population that creates a unique set of responsibilities for the researcher. According to ESOMAR's Guidelines on Interviewing Children and Young People, "The welfare of the children and young people themselves is the overriding consideration - they must not be disturbed or harmed by the experience of being interviewed." This is the point of view we take when approaching a project involving children.
