Picture of sea vessel plough through rough maritime conditions

Innovations in marine technology, pioneered through Open Access research...

Strathprints makes available scholarly Open Access content by researchers in the Department of Naval Architecture, Ocean & Marine Engineering based within the Faculty of Engineering.

Research here explores the potential of marine renewables, such as offshore wind, current and wave energy devices to promote the delivery of diverse energy sources. Expertise in offshore hydrodynamics in offshore structures also informs innovations within the oil and gas industries. But as a world-leading centre of marine technology, the Department is recognised as the leading authority in all areas related to maritime safety, such as resilience engineering, collision avoidance and risk-based ship design. Techniques to support sustainability vessel life cycle management is a key research focus.

Abstract

Much has been written in recent years about research methods used when conducting research with and about children, with many approaches taking cognizance of the children’s rights agenda. This article proposes adopting a philosophical approach, through Community of Philosophical Inquiry (CoPI), as a research method that pays attention to children’s rights. In so advocating, the argument presented is that CoPI makes explicit children’s conceptual understanding and that this complements other research methods. CoPI allows for authentic voice and ‘conceptual autonomy’ through the shared meaning-making in philosophical dialogue by recognizing children’s capacities as thinkers in their own right.
