Focusing on the rights of children and young people, and specifically their participation rights, this chapter considers new and developing participatory research methods that enhance children’s inclusion in research both as participants and as researchers. Drawing on in-depth case studies from research – for example, on young carers and their families - the chapter demonstrates how new or different methodological approaches to working inclusively with vulnerable children and young people can result in social and political transformations as well as improve their quality of life and the lives of their families. This chapter also considers the various ethical challenges that arise when using participatory research methods with children and young people.

Keywords:   children’s rights, visual research methods, young carers, research ethics
