Research itself, or rather ideas about it and how it should properly be conducted, constitute sites of contestation and struggle with very high stakes. Research and what counts as valid knowledge are political matters and this chapter offers examples of how differing kinds of help are privileged and delimited by differing research paradigms. It offers an important challenge to the research evidence behind aspects of contemporary policies in child protection.
